In other actions:

Michael Ladale Bester, 32, 90-A Hicks Hill Lane, was accused of violating probation, which stemmed from a 2006 conviction of felony eluding a law enforcement officer. He was sentenced by Judge Frank Vollor to five years in prison.

Carl Vincent Cisero, 32, 2093 Johnson Road, Hermanville, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated driving under the influence and was ordered by Vollor to two years in prison followed by three years of probation. He was also ordered to pay $7312.50 in fines, court costs, assessments and restitution to the victims.

Cisero admitted to driving drunk and hitting two teenage boys, ages 14 and 15, who were shooting fireworks in the street New Year’s Eve of 2006. The accident occurred about 11:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Greenbriar Road. Cisero also reportedly hit one vehicle parked in the same block and ran into another parked vehicle down the street, where his vehicle came to a stop and he was later arrested. According to reports, Cisero’s blood-alcohol level was .24 percent, three times the legal limit.

David Ferrell Edens, 29, 1193 Standard Hill Road, convicted of child abuse 2003, was sentenced by Vollor to 10 years in prison on a probation violation. In July 2003, Edens was accused of grabbing, choking, hitting and threatening the life of a 2-year-old and repeatedly kicking the child’s mother, who was pregnant at the time.

Bobby Lester, 34, 15 Green Pasture Road, pleaded guilty to one count of vehicle burglary and another of attempted auto burglary and was sentenced by Vollor to one year in prison and $600 in restitution.

Robert E. Williams, 52, 330 Widow Bayou Road, Anguilla, three indictments for sale of controlled substance.

Sharkey County grand juries are chosen each January, April and September. Law enforcement officers present cases, and jurors decide if there is enough evidence for a criminal trial. If so, indictments are issued and defendants, most of whom have been free on bond, appear at a formal arraignment to hear the charges they face. Most then remain free on bond pending resolution of the indictments through a trial or plea bargains.

In the case of Albert Lane, 42, P.O. Box, 565 Anguilla, who was facing a charge of non-residential burglary, a no-bill was returned, meaning jurors felt there was not enough evidence for the case to go to trial. Also, Sonja Jackson, 38, 53 Holly Bluff Road, Rolling Fork, had her charge of simple assault on a law enforcement officer reduced to a misdemeanor.
