The LCSO remained very busy last week with a significant amount of Court hearings and law days which required additional courthouse security. We also have been working on a large number of fugitive investigations and other on-going criminal cases being worked on.
April 11 a man who initially appeared in Circuit Court for criminal law day apparently had a change of mind during a court recess. The subject who was represented by an attorney fled from the courthouse and has not returned. The man was being given the option for drug treatment or a prison sentence. Apparently, he did not like either option. A fugitive investigation is continuing at this time.
The LCSO recently received Court orders to cause Randy L. Schneider, 57, Chillicothe to be transferred to the Missouri Department of Corrections on a Driving While Revoked Probation Violation and serve a 4 year sentence.
April 19 the LCSO learned that a posting on our office Facebook helped to reunite a lost dog with its family. The English Bull Dog had been missing since April 14. Thank you to those who saw our posting and to the family which found and returned the dog.
Recently Sheriff Cox received notice from the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail regarding a Livingston County detainee reportedly standing on a top bunk with a sheet tied around his/her neck and threatening to jump off and kill themselves. The detention staff acted appropriately in attempting to talk the person down and when that was unsuccessful additional force was used including pepper spray and quick intervention to remove the detainee from the situation and ability to self-harm. No injuries were reported.
