On May 14, 2018, Randall Peterson appeared in Edgar County Circuit Court to enter a negotiated guilty plea of Battery – which amended the original charge from “domestic” battery, to “battery.” (even though we all know it was domestic)

Peterson pleads guilty to Battery, a Class A Misdemeanor, and was sentenced to:

  • $350 fine plus court costs
  • 24 months probation, counseling,
  • weekly Alcoholic Anonymous meetings,
  • 80 hours of Community Service Work,
  • and to not consume alcohol while on Probation

He is scheduled for a review of payment and community service work on December 10, 2018 at 2:00 p,m. in the Edgar County Courthouse.

    Probation, counseling, no alcohol, community service. I think that amounts to an effective way to deal with the underlying problem. Like many addicts, this is a guy who has a lot of potential if he can get help and get over his problem.

    At lease he now has an updated photo in case he wants to run for the state legislature. He would be a shoe-in for representing Crook County.

      EDIT: meant least versus lease. Spell check turned off now.

    Well, hopefully he’ll get straightened out – for his sake AND his family’s.
