The Examiner reported:
If Jarred D. Elwood violates his probation, he will go to prison for 10 years.
But if he doesn’t, Elwood could live the rest of his days a free man.
A judge on Sept. 1 sentenced Elwood to five years probation after he admitted to sodomizing, molesting and enticing a young girl.
Elwood, 38, pleaded guilty in July to three felony counts. He pleaded guilty to first-degree statutory sodomy, child molestation, and enticement of a child.
Jackson County Circuit Court Judge John Torrence accepted the guilty pleas.
At the sentencing hearing, Torrence gave him 10 years in prison on the sodomy charge, seven years for the molestation and four years for the inticement.
The sentences ran concurrently, meaning only the 10-year sentence would apply.
Torrence suspended the sentence and placed Elwood on five years of supervised probation.
Many of the details of what Elwood admitted doing to the girl cannot be published. Too graphic.
The details are too graphic to publish yet this criminal is still walking the streets?
