Defendant left on home detention

From Local Sources

JASPER — A defendant lost good-time credit but was allowed to remain on home detention during a dispositional hearing last week in Dubois Superior Court.

Terrance D. Vaughn, 40, 657 W. Village Court, Jasper, pleaded guilty to obstruction and impaired driving charges in November and received a suspended sentence that placed him on home detention, according to court documents.

Authorities petitioned to revoke Vaughn’s probation in January after he failed random drug screens while on home detention.

During a hearing in March, Vaughn admitted to the allegations. But the record also showed he had completed a court alcohol and drug program, had been attending class each week in a follow-up program and was current with his case manager appointments and account payments.

During a dispositional hearing last week, Vaughn lost good-time credit but was given the chance to remain on home detention with electronic monitoring as long as he continues to pass all drug screens.
