Walnut Hill Woman Sentenced to Three Year Prison After Probation Is Revoked

March 16, 2017

A 44-year-old Walnut Hill woman has been sentenced to three years in prison in Marion County Court after her probation was revoked for aggravated driving under the influence and felony driving on a revoked license.

Dawn Ferguson of Bundyville Road received a three-year prison term on the DUI charge and two years on the driving on a revoked license charge, with the time to be served concurrently.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Marc Kelly noted Ferguson has never passed a drug test while on probation and has immediately had violations after being resentenced to probation in the past.

Ferguson had asked for a continuance of the sentencing hearing because she had not met with her probation officer or attorney. The Judge denied the request because Ferguson failed to appear for the original sentencing hearing set last September and had ‘done nothing’ since her January arrest to meet with her attorney or probation officer.

Ferguson was recommended for substance abuse counseling while in prison.
