A number of people were given prison sentences or put on probation during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday.

27-year-old Ryan Hodges of Gamaliel was put on probation for four years after admitting that he had been in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in early December.

Jessica Shafter of Lakeview made a fairly speedy trip through the justice system. After being booked into the Baxter County Detention Center December 8th, she entered a guilty plea to the charges against her about six days later. She was given a four year probation sentence during Thursday's Circuit Court session.
