In last week’s Court Report the sentencing and dismissal of charges against Joshua Hall Blewett were attributed to Kenneth Lee Birch. The court dismissed charges of Assault in the 3rd Degree, Sexual Assault in the 1st Degree, Kidnapping, and 2 counts of Assault in the 4th Degree against the defendant Joshua Blewett. He entered a guilty plea to a single charge of Assault in the 4th Degree and was sentenced to 365 days in jail and payment of 2 - $50 surcharges. The court released Blewett after giving credit for time served.
The case involving Kenneth Birch was reported in the Feb. 22 paper on page 5. Two sexual assault charges were dismissed against Birch before the case went to trial.
