Man gets probation, ordered into drug court

Donald Dreggors of Mountain Home changed his plea to guilty on drug-related charges and was sentenced to six years probation and ordered into the 14th Judicial District Drug Court Program during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday.

The 37-year-old Dreggors was arrested in late August last year as the result of a traffic stop by an Arkansas State Police trooper. Dreggors was a passenger in the vehicle.

The trooper reported finding a glass smoking pipe used for the ingestion of methamphetamine. Dreggors has had other drug-related charges lodged against him in the past.

Prior to entering the Drug Court Program, Dreggors will be required to spend 90 days in one of the Community Correction Centers in the state to go through an addiction treatment program. He will then return and enter the Drug Court Program in this county, which can take two years or more to complete.
