Tobey pled guilty to one count and no contest to the other.

Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo noted that the two crimes were committed with a short time frame, and involved two different women.

Piccolo sentenced Tobey to 18 months probation and ordered him to enter the Domestic Violence Intervention Program -- a series of therapy, counseling and anger management sessions.

Piccolo told Tobey that he cannot just attend the CVIP sessions, that he must actively participate.

Tobey’s first assault charge came when his intimate partner reported they had argued and he grabbed her by the neck and threw her down.

The latest charge came after another intimate partner said they had argued and Tobey kicked her legs. Both women had visible injuries when officers contacted them, prosecutors said.

Defense Attorney Pat Hays told Piccolo that at the times of the assaults Tobey was having a problem with alcohol and other substances.

Hearing that, Piccolo added conditions to Tobey’s probation -- no alcohol and not allowed to enter any business that sells alcohol as its main business product.


Jones

Also, Bernadette Jones, 31, of Lexington was convicted of a reduced charge of attempted possession of marijuana.

Jones was arrested May 11 on I-80 just east of the Hershey interchange by a state trooper during a traffic stop for speeding and no license plates. Jones consented to a search of her vehicle and the trooper found 0.8 pounds of marijuana in separate small bags.

She was originally charged with possession with intent to distribute. She paid 10% of a $10,000 bond and was released May 13.

In court Thursday, Jones asked for leniency. She said she was recently hired at Tyson Foods in Lexington and if she went to jail she would lose her job.

Defense attorney P. Stephen Potter asked for time before sentencing so Jones could arrange for work release if she is jailed.

Piccolo ordered a pre-sentence investigation to allow the court to consider some options. Piccolo warned Jones that even though her charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, he had to consider the original charge in sentencing and he must treat her like anyone else.

Piccolo told Jones to return July 18 for sentencing.

Jones served two days in jail and will get credit for them in her sentencing.
