Charles Weaver of Winamac Sentenced For Trafficking

A Winamac man was sentenced in Pulaski Circuit Court on two amended charges of Trafficking with an Inmate, a Class A Misdemeanor.

Charles A. Weaver of Winamac was arrested in February 2011 on a Class C Felony charge of Trafficking with an Inmate, but it was later amended to two misdemeanor counts. Weaver pleaded guilty to those charges in a plea agreement and Judge Michael Shurn sentenced him to one year incarceration on each count to be served consecutively.

Judge Shurn ordered that one year of incarceration shall be executed on home detention through the Tippecanoe County Community Corrections Program, if Weaver is eligible for the program. He will not receive any credit for time served. The other year in his sentence will be served on probation.
