Margaret Irving went before Shelby County Associate Circuit Judge Mike Greenwell for her preliminary hearing in connection with a major marijuana bust that took place at her residence on Nov. 13, 2013.
   Shelbina City Marshal Jerry Fenton took the stand for nearly and hour-and-a-half answering questions from Shelby County Prosecuting Attorney Jordan Force and then being cross-examined by Todd Shulze, the public defender representing Irving.
   Fenton testified that he went to Irving’s house in reference to some questions she had for the police department. When he knocked on the door, she came around the house from the back. He smelled marijuana, that he believed was coming from the house, and noticed condensation in the windows of the house. He also noticed that all the windows of the house had something in front of them on the inside obstructing the view from outside looking in.
   Fenton then asked for the utility usage of Irving’s house compared to a similar residence next door. He the usage was three times what the neighbor’s was and over twice what her house was the previous year.
   Fenton said he and Officer Adams from the Missouri State Highway Patrol went back to Irving’s house the next day to follow up on her complaint, and to also check into the possible marijuana issue. After knocking on the front door, Fenton said Irving again came around the house from the back door. She was talking to Fenton and Adams about holes in her west wall she believed were bullet holes from her neighbor. Fenton asked to see if they could check the wall from the inside of the house, and Irving told him no.

Several local law enforcement and courthouse officials the Crime Victims’ Rights Week Ceremony in Shelbyville.

This year Crime Victims’ Rights Week was April 6-12. This is the 30th year of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) and its critical mission to fund crime victim compensation and victim assistance programs across the nation. The theme for this year is ‘30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice.’
   On Thursday, April 10 a ceremony was held on the lawn of the Shelby County Courthouse. Dennis Baldwin, Probation and Parole Officer, had the opening remarks, followed with a prayer by Toni Rickenburg.
   Baldwin, introduced Becky Stine, who shared a few words with the guests. She spoke about how 30 years ago crime victims had no rights or assistance. She stated, “They (crime victims) were commonly excluded from courtrooms and denied the chance to speak at sentencing. They had no access to victim compensation or services to help rebuild their lives.” She stated that there has been progress made, but that they still have work to do. She stated that in 1984, the VOCA was passed and it created a national fund to ease victims’ suffering. It is not financed by the taxpayers but by fines and penalties paid by offenders.
