Two of the 58 people arraigned in Cullman County Circuit Court earlier this week entered pleas and received sentences on drug-related charges.

Victoria Christenbury, 41, pleaded guilty before Circuit Judge Don Hardeman to a charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance. She was sentenced to three years. The sentence was suspended and Christenbury was placed on three years supervised probation.

Rodney Lee Murcks, 34, pleaded guilty before Hardeman to a charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance. He was sentenced to three years. The sentence was suspended and Murcks was placed on two years supervised probation.

All other cases coming before Hardeman and Circuit Judge Frank Brunner were bound over to the further pleadings docket scheduled for Feb. 15 and 16.

Criminal jury trials are scheduled for the week of Feb. 27.

Property crimes ranging from burglary to theft of property, unlawful breaking and entering a motor vehicle to receiving stolen property dominated arraignments.

A majority of those arraigned this week were indicted during the recent term of the grand jury. Others are appealing their cases from lower courts.

During arraignment, suspects are explained the charges against them and offered the services of a court-appointed attorney if they need one. The judge, at his discretion, may also accept pleas upon the recommendation of the district attorney.
