Four Sentenced In District Court

Four Fairbury residents appeared in front of Judge Paul W. Korslund yesterday in District Court. Two received probation and two were sentenced to the Department of Corrections.

Amy Barker-Rollins, 31, appeared on two separate cases. On Feb. 22 information was filed charging her with abuse of a vulnerable adult, a Class IIIA Felony. The charge stems from an incident between Dec. 13, 2010 and Jan. 13, 2011 where she did through a knowing and intentional act cause or permit a vulnerable adult to be physically injured, unreasonably confined, sexually abused, exploited, cruelly punished or denied essential services.

Barker-Rollins returned to court on May 12 and the Felony count was amended and she was charged with two counts of third degree assault, Class I Misdemeanors. She pled no contest to the amended charges. She was found guilty.
