Felon with $11,000 in Old Fines, & 4 Misdemeanors Tells Judge “They Won’t Revoke Me”November 8th, 2010 by Joe Burgess
Reggie Wherry, of Monticello, appeared before Judge Ken Harper last Friday, facing several misdemeanor charges including, fleeing, public intox, refusing to submit to arrest, and use of profane and abusive language.
Judge Harper brought up the issue of Wherry’s $11, 630 in old, unpaid fines. Wherry told the court that they needed to let him out of jail so that he could work to pay off his fines. Judge Harper told him that the city had a job for him starting every morning at 7:30.
When the hearing came back around to the charges Wherry was facing, and how often he appears in District Court, he told the court that the Parole Office wouldn’t revoke him, although he didn’t comment as to why that was the case.
Judge Harper set Wherry’s bond at $11,630, cash only, and he is currently being held in the Drew County Detention Facility.
