Three people accused in spray painting incidents July 5 in Trenton appeared Tuesday in the Associate Division of the Grundy County Circuit Court.

Twenty-two-year-old Kelli Danielle Corrigan of Trenton pleaded guilty to an amended charge of second-degree property damage – a misdemeanor. Imposition of sentence was suspended, and Corrigan was placed on two years probation. The prosecutor reportedly has no objection to her early release from supervised probation if she successfully completes the first year. The court ordered her to pay restitution. The posted $500 bond will cover court costs and the first part of restitution, with the balance of $685 due in six months.

Twenty-one-year-old Aaron Zackary Wolf-Moffett of Trenton saw two counts of first-degree property damage continued until August 24. The court modified his bond and allowed him to post $600, which is 12% of the $5,000 bond.

Jamesport resident 21-year-old Emily Nichole Turner waived a preliminary hearing on four felony counts. The cases were bound over to the August 12 docket in Division One of the Grundy County Circuit Court. Turner faces two counts of 1st-degree property damage as well as third-degree assault; and alleged tampering, or attempt to tamper, with a victim in a felony prosecution. Her bond remains at $7,500.
