Four Sentenced on Felonies

February 26, 2016 - 4:31 PM

MOUNT VERNON – Four defendants were sentenced today by Judge Otho Eyster in the Knox County Court of Common Pleas.

Zachariah Keen, a 20 year-old Mount Vernon resident, was resentenced today to 7 years in prison. He previously pled guilty to felonious assault on October 7, 2014 for the burn injuries he inflicted on five-month-old Hunter Hammons. His sentence was vacated by the Fifth District Court of Appeals, although that Court stated that the facts and the severity of the injuries fully supported a seven-year sentence.  Restitution in the amount of $58,300 was also ordered.

Morgan E. Tedrick, 23, of Mount Vernon, was sentenced on two counts of Breaking and Entering and one count of Aggravated Possession of Drugs, all fifth-degree felonies. Tedrick was found in a garage by a homeowner on the South Side of Mount Vernon. Items belonging to the homeowner and the homeowner of a previous break-in were recovered. He was ordered to serve 180 days in the Knox County jail with 11 months in prison suspended on each count.  Tedrick was also ordered to pay court costs and $1,200 in restitution. His driver’s license will be suspended for 6 months and he will be on community control for three years.

Mary K. McGregor, 34, of Mount Vernon was sentenced for two counts of Trafficking in Heroin, both fifth-degree felonies. She will serve 11 months in prison for each count concurrently with a six month driver’s license suspension and court costs.

Steven E. Cole, 36, of Mount Vernon, was sentenced for Breaking and Entering and Aggravated Possession of Drugs, both fifth-degree felonies. Cole will serve 11 months on each count concurrently with a six month driver’s license suspension.

Joseph West failed to appear for sentencing today. Judge Eyster ordered a nationwide warrant for his arrest with a $25,000 bond.
