MADISON — A Peytona man was sent back to jail after violating his home confinement and probation.
Brandon Shawn Mollett, 27, of Peytona, appeared in Boone County Circuit Court Wednesday, July 15, before Judge William Thompson and admitted he had used methampethamine, Oxycodone and other illegal drugs after testing positive during a drug screen on June 2, 2015.
“You are running out of chances,” Judge Thompson told Mollett.
Mollett was charged in Oct. 2013 and later indicted with three other Boone County men for allegedly operating a clandestine meth lab at 92 Vista Drive in Racine, as well as conspiracy.
According to the police report in that case, police caught the men actively cooking meth in two separate containers at the residence.
Mollett was initially able to elude police after fleeing the scene, but was later captured and charged.
Mollett was on home confinement and probation awaiting trail, but was sent back to jail for 120 days by the judge for violating the conditions of his release from jail by using illegal drugs.
Mollett was visually upset in the courtroom to the news he would be returning to jail.
“After the way you acted at the home confinement office and they way you are acting in the courtroom, I would advise you to learn how to handle bad news better or you could be looking at a year in prison before being considered for probation,” the judge said.
• In other Boone County courtroom news, a Jeffrey woman was back in court after violation of her home confinement for not taking medications in the manner in which they were prescribed by the doctor and the fact that the home she was living in was no longer approved for home confinement.
Amy Michelle Davis, 37, of Jeffrey, was indicted in April and charged with malicious assault and child neglect creating risk of injury after police allege she struck and kicked an adult victim on Aug. 15, 2013, while encouraging her child to participate in the altercation.
According to the criminal complaint filed in the case, the victim was operating a vehicle on Jones Branch Road in Jeffrey on Aug. 15, 2013, and when she attempted to turn around in a driveway, Davis blocked her vehicle with a white SUV she was traveling in.
The victim told police that Davis ran to her vehicle and began to punch her in the face. The victim said she was trying to get out of her vehicle when she was struck in the back of the head and almost knocked unconscious. She claims she was knocked to the ground and Davis, another man and Davis’ juvenile daughter began to punch, kick and stomp her while she was lying on the ground.
Police observed the victim to have extensive bruising, swelling and lacerations to her face and nectk area, as well as missing teeth. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
At the hosptial, police learned that the victim had a broken eye socket and a laceration on her face that required stitches.
Davis’ defense attorney made a counter offer to a plea deal made by prosecutors in the case and the two sides reported to the judge that they were very close to reaching an agreement in the negotiations.
Boone County Circuit Judge William Thompson scheduled a plea hearing for Davis on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, at 9:30 a.m.
