Kristen Webb

Two Starke County residents were sentenced in Starke Circuit Court Wednesday morning after pleading guilty to methamphetamine-related charges.

Kristen Webb and Joseph Givens pleaded guilty to charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Maintaining a Common Nuisance. They were ordered to serve three years for the charge of Possession of Methamphetamine which will be served on home detention. On the charge of Maintaining a Common Nuisance, the pair were sentenced to three years in the Department of Corrections with all of that sentence suspended to be served on probation. They were ordered to pay court costs and a drug interdiction fee of $250. If they successfully complete probation, they can petition the court for modification for misdemeanor treatment.

Webb and Givens were arrested after an incident on Nov. 23, 2011 when Knox City Police officers executed a search warrant at a home on Portland Street and drug activity was present.
