Dylan Cole Anderson received a 5-year deferred sentence Jan. 14 for a Feb. 1, 2020 possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. As part of a deal reached with prosecutors in the case, Anderson admitted guilt to an Oct. 26, 2020 possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance charge which was dismissed with prejudice. Anderson remained in Hopkins County jail from Oct. 26, 2020, until after his court appearance Jan. 14.

In addition to remaining on probation for five years, Anderson will be required to pay a $1,000 fine, court costs and associated fees. The 17-year-old also is required to complete a GED program to attain that certificate or attain a high school diploma. Anderson received credit for serving as a kitchen trusty at Hopkins County jail while in custody, reducing the amount of community service he will be required to complete to four hours per month.

Jesus Enriquez received a 2-year deferred sentence Jan. 14 for a May 17, 2019 possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance charge. The charge stems for a traffic stop in which he was allegedly found in possession of THC wax and drug paraphernalia. The Pittsburg man, 21 at the time of his arrest, remained in jail overnight May 17, 2019, then was released from jail the next day on a $25,000 bond.

Enriquez is to serve two years on probation, pay court and associated fees and a $1,000 fine on the charge.

Kenneth Wayne Shaw was scheduled to appear in court for an April 20, 2020 third-degree felony assault of a family or household member charge on Jan. 14. He was booked into the county jail April 21, 2020 after allegedly choking his nephew multiple times, impeding the nephew’s breathing. He was released later that day on a $10,000 bond.

As part of a deal, Shaw pled guilty to a Class A misdemeanor family violence assault charge and received a two-year deferred sentence, which he will be required to serve on probation. Shaw will also be required to pay a $300 fine and court and associated fees, and must complete an anger management class.

Lanorya Shaneka Stokes was scheduled Jan. 14 to appear for a final announcement before a court hearing or trial on a possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge. The charge stemmed for a traffic stop in which 8 multi-colored pills a trooper believed to be Ecstasy and less than 2 ounces of marijuana were found in a bag in the trunk of the car she was driving on May 17, 2019. The Fort Worth woman also reportedly had a suspended license at the time.

However, on Jan. 14, 2021, Assistant District Attorney Matt Harris reported that third-degree felony charge against her had been dismissed earlier in the morning. Court officials reminded Stokes that the dismissal is only for that charge; if she has any outstanding charges in other courts those charges would still be active.
