Webb sentenced to weekends

Thursday, August 20, 2009

GREENCASTLE -- An Indianapolis woman has been sentenced to four weekends in jail for identity deception.

Shakeya Webb, 21, was originally charged with Class B felony dealing in a schedule I controlled substance, Class C felony trafficking with an inmate and Class D felony identity deception. Under the terms of a plea agreement, the Class B and C felonies were dropped.

Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley sentenced Webb to one-and-a-half years with all suspended except four consecutive weekends. Webb will receive credit for the two days she served in jail after her arrest.

A warrant for Webb's arrest was issued Jan. 29 in connection with an incident in which she attempted to pass drugs and a cell phone to Putnamville Correctional Facility inmate Charles Archey during a visit.

Court documents said Webb lied about her identity to gain entry into the facility to visit Archey.

Webb was arrested on March 30. She pled not guilty to all charges at her initial hearing on March 31, she pled not guilty to all charges and posted 10 percent of a $30,000 bond to be released from jail.

Archey was serving a five-year sentence at Putnamville for armed robbery, carrying a handgun without a license, resisting law enforcement and forced entry when the incident occurred.

On Aug. 6, Archey was sentenced to 10 years for Class B felony dealing in a schedule I controlled substance in connection with the incident. He would have been released from jail on Sept. 3, 2010 before the new charge. He also lost any accumulated good time credit.

I agree. Why waste tax money going to court?
