WORTHINGTON — Two individuals were sentenced recently in local Fifth District Courts, in cases previously reported on by The Globe.
Anthony Hemphill, 26, of Jackson, was sentenced in Jackson County Fifth District Court on Sept. 13. Hemphill was issued a summons to appear in court in April, following a September 2021 incident, where he faced charges of ineligible firearm possession . Hemphill had a prior felony conviction making him unable to possess a firearm or ammunition.
Having entered a guilty plea, he was convicted on one count of ineligible persons in possession of a firearm, a felony-level offense. He has been sentenced to 60 months in a correctional facility, with 120 days credit for time served.
In Rock County Fifth District Court, Edgerton resident Kane Stoel, 19, was sentenced on Sept. 26, having entered a plea of guilty. Stoel was charged with a felony count of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle after an April 19 incident.
Stoel also faced two misdemeanor charges for traffic violations, both of which were dismissed per the plea agreement.
He was convicted on the charge of fleeing a peace officer, but granted a stay of imposition. If two years of supervised probation is successfully completed, charges will be downgraded to a misdemeanor conviction.
Stoel’s sentencing also includes payment of a $1,000 fine.
