Treva J. Jackson, 37, was convicted of two counts of Class D felony criminal recklessness. Judge Matthew Headley sentenced her to concurrent three-year sentences (the maximum sentence for a Class D felony). Jackson received credit for 264 days she had spent in jail, and Headley suspended the rest of the sentence and placed Jackson on probation for the remainder of her term.
Jackson was originally in court to be sentenced on Jan. 27. On that date, Headley ordered her to submit to a urine drug screen. That screen came back negative, and the order on sentencing was delayed.
Originally, Jackson faced four charges of Class C felony battery by means of a deadly weapon, for which she could have received a 32-year sentence. A plea agreement reduced two of the charges.
At about 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 19, 2009 Jackson was at Old Topper Tavern in Greencastle. She got into a verbal spat with another female patron at the bar, Jessica Phares, and the two ended up in a physical scuffle.
Jackson pulled a knife on Phares, and three men, Toby Williams, Jeffrey King and Christopher Wasnidge-Williams, attempted to break up the fight. Phares, Williams, King and Wasnidge-Williams all sustained minor injuries, court records said.
Headley initially set Jackson's bond at $20,000 cash. In October, Jackson posted bond after a reduction to $20,000 with 10 percent allowed was authorized.
As a term of her bond, Jackson was ordered to hook up to electronic home monitoring through Putnam County Community Corrections. She was found guilty of violating the terms of her bond in November, and was sent back to jail.
Jackson was released from jail on Dec. 30 after entering a guilty plea to the two Class D felonies.
