On Friday, 9th Circuit Judge M. James Chaney heard six sentencing cases.

Jonathan Willis, charged with 4th offense driving under the influence, was remanded to drug court.

Antonio Glasper, who had previously been charged with receiving stolen property, stated the car he had purchased had an intact VIN number and he had no reason to believe the car had been involved in a crime. A previous guilty plea was determined to be a clerical error and vacated by the state. Glasper was given five years of probation and ordered to pay a fine and court costs.
