Richard A. Harrington, 45, of 555 Maple Street Apartments #36 in Lebanon received five years of probation in Marion Circuit Court recently for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance more than 10 dosage unit, first offense (two counts) and first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance more than 20 dosage unit, first offense (three counts).
He was ordered to serve 170 days in jail and to pay $175 court costs. He was also ordered to make restitution payments of $200 to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, $270 to the Kentucky State Police, $100 to KSP Desi West, and $200 to KSP Post 15.
Two other Harringtons entered Alford pleas to charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance less than 10 dosage units first offense. In an Alford plea a defendant acknowledges that the prosecution could likely win a conviction but the defendant does not admit guilt.
Lori M. Harrington, 47, and Robert J. Harrington, 54, both of 4000 N. Central Expy #374 in Plano, Texas, each received one year of pretrial diversion, and they were ordered to pay $150 court costs.
