CLINTON — A Clinton man was ordered to serve prison sentences for a felony and two misdemeanor charges.
Darryl C. Walton, 53, appeared Thursday in Clinton County District Court for sentencing for possession of methamphetamine, third offense, a Class D felony; third-degree attempted burglary, an aggravated misdemeanor; and assault with a dangerous weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor.
District Court Judge Nancy Tabor sentenced Walton to up to five years in prison on the meth charge and ordered him to pay a $750 fine. The fine was suspended. Tabor sentenced Walton to up to two years in prison on both of the aggravated misdemeanor charges. Fines of $625 for each misdemeanor charge were suspended. The sentences are ordered to be served concurrently.
Walton was given credit for time served in the Clinton County Jail in connection with the charges. Charges of going armed with intent and assault causing bodily injury or mental illness were dismissed, with costs assessed to Walton.
The charges were in reference to two separate incidents – a disturbance in the 200 block of Fifth Avenue South on May 17 and an Oct. 14 burglary and assault call to an apartment at 431 Fifth Ave. South.
