Petitions to modify sentences

Michael L. Vance has asked the court to modify his 3 2-year sentences which he had previously agreed to. The sentences were to be served consecutively to one another. He also received 39 actual days in credit. Two of the sentences were for theft; the other for possession of meth.
Vance had arranged for admission to New Beginnings, a halfway house in Corydon where he also found a job.
In denying the request, Judge Jon Webster noted it was premature because Vance's conduct while in prison is indicative of his inability to conform his behavior to certain rules. For example, Vance has received 5 conduct violations in prison, the most serious for failing a drug test for barbiturates and has lost 135 days of time cuts. The DOC takes away credit time very rarely because of their desire to move individuals out of prison as quickly as possible, wrote the judge.
Lisa M. England was sentenced on Jan. 24, 2012 on a conviction for manufacturing meth, a B felony, and received a sentence of 6 years with the option of sentence modification if she completed the CLIFF program.
She has now completed the CLIFF.
The court, then, has modified her sentence to 4 years executed and 2 years suspended. She will be released from the DOC on May 21, 2013 and be on probation for 1 year.
Gregory D. Loper was convicted in January 2011 operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated resulting in serious bodily injury, a D felony, and was adjudicated a habitual substance offender. His original sentence of 3 years monitored house arrest through the Jackson-Jennings Community Corrections has been modified to 18 months of house arrest, giving him day for day credit off.
Loper will be on reporting probation from the date the ankle bracelet is removed until his 3 year sentence is completed.
