After his first plea agreement was denied by Starke Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall on April 20th, another plea agreement was reached in the case of Kevin Eggert who has plead guilty to one count of Intimidation, a Class C Felony. Eggert has been incarcerated for 148 days since his arrest, and the victim, Misty Ross, was present to give her approval of the plea agreement.
Eggert admitted that he had gotten into an argument concerning relationship problems with his girlfriend, Misty Ross. Eggert, out of control, then drove home to retrieve a gun before returning and threatening Ross with the intimidating weapon: a 12-gauge shotgun. Eggert mentioned that he is currently being treated for psychological issues and is taking medication.
Judge Hall decided to accept this plea agreement, which sentences Eggert to three years in the Department of Corrections, those three years suspended, with the exception of the time he has served in jail. He will be placed on probation for 30 months, and he will undergo anger management and mental health evaluations. Court costs and all other related fees are to be paid, and he is to have no contact with Ross except to schedule visitation for their daughter.
In a separate case, Eggert is also facing charges for arson. His trial for these charges is set for May 25th.
