Sentence Modifications Heard in Starke Circuit Court

 A sentence modification was approved in the case of Douglas Beem.

He requested the judge to move from Community Transition Program (CTP) to probation and/or to home detention. The state objected to a move to probation but accepted a move to daily reporting home detention with Starke County Community Corrections. The request was granted by Judge Kim Hall.

A request to move Mickey Richie from work release to home detention was denied by Judge Hall. Richie has 64 days left to serve in his sentence and the state objected to his request as the sentence modification was not included in the plea agreement that was accepted by the court.
