Two Sentenced in Starke Circuit Court

 Two defendants were sentenced in Starke Circuit Court on Wednesday.

Carter Scutchfield pleaded guilty to an amended charge of receiving stolen auto parts as a Class D felony. The sentence was presented as an agreed recommendation to Judge Kim Hall. Per that recommendation, Scutchfield was sentenced to 26 months in the Indiana Department of Corrections with no part of the sentence suspended.

With Scutchfield’s case in Marshall County which includes time to be spent in the DOC, the court stayed four months of his sentence until he completes his time served in the DOC. When he is released, he is to notify Starke Circuit Court and a status hearing will be held in the case to determine how he will serve the last four months of the sentence. He was also ordered to pay $414 in restitution.

Olivia Chasse pleaded guilty to Class D felony charges of possession of a narcotic drug and possession of a syringe.

She was sentenced per the terms of that agreement to 15 months in the Indiana Department of Corrections with 12 months suspended on each count. With that, she successfully served her time on the sentence and was released.

As part of the terms of her probation, she must attend a drug treatment program. If she successfully completes probation, she may petition the court for misdemeanor treatment. The state would reserve the right to object to the request.
