After hearing testimony for two days, it took a Knox County jury 22 minutes to come up with a guilty verdict on all three charges against Margaret Irving, 61, of Shelbina, on Friday afternoon.
   Irving received 10 years in the Department of Corrections for count I., manufacturing more than five grams of marijuana, B felony. She received two years in the Department of Corrections for keeping or maintaining a public nuisance, C felony; and four years in the Department of Corrections for possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana, C felony.
   A misdemeanor charge of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia was dropped by the prosecution during the trial.
   After an opening statement by the prosecution, Shelby County Prosecuting Attorney Jordan Force called her witnesses.
   Jerry Fenton Testifies
   Shelbina City Marshal Jerry Fenton took the stand on Thursday afternoon and described how he went to Irving’s house on Nov. 13 to tell her that many of the records she had requested from the police department didn’t exist.
   He and officer Jen Swantz arrived at the house, parking in the street in front of the house and knocked on the front door. Fenton stated that Irving came out the back door and around the west side of the house. He noticed a strong odor of marijuana. He also noticed moisture in the Northwest window of the house. So much so that there was mold in the window sill.
   Fenton also mentioned Irving had six video survalliance cameras on the Northwest corner of her front porch. He also noted that the windows were covered in the front of her home.

Council Approves City Court Checking Account

The Shelbina City Council approved the opening of an account which will allow them to keep fine money from municipal court until the end of each month. This was done during the regular council meeting Tuesday night at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Court Money
   In the last meeting, City Marshal Jerry Fenton talked to the Mayor and Council about signing up with an organization called Court Money. This allows people who owe for fines to pay by credit card. The money is then put into an account to store it for the remainder of that current month, before then being transferred to wherever it needs to go.
   The council had taken bids and passed a motion to go with Community State Bank, because in its bid it didn’t include any fees.
   When a person pays for a fine it will be collected by Court Money and deposited into the account at Community State Bank. A motion passed to have Mayor Al Dimmit and City Treasurer Janice Magruder to be the ones to sign the checks for the account, and to put $500 seed money in the account. They also passed a motion to have Jerry Fenton sign the agreement with Court Money.
   The council also talked about the possibility of having credit card capabilities for collecting money at the city hall. Council members decided to wait until a new City Clerk is hired before the move forward with that possibility. City Attorney John Wilcox also suggested that they wait and see how the program they just approved works.
