Man jailed for skipping community serviceApril 12, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Police booked a man into the Dubois County Security Center this week on a warrant issued after he failed to complete his community service obligation from a misdemeanor driving offense sentencing.
The Jasper Police Department originally arrested Derion D. Fisher, 23, 415 E. 15th St., Jasper, in July 2018, and charged him with a misdemeanor count of driving while having never been licensed. He was sentenced in December to 60 days in the Dubois County Security Center suspended to 180 days supervised probation and 40 hours community service within two months.
In February, authorities advised the court that Fisher failed to complete his community service. He was sentenced to serve four days in jail at that time but, on Friday, April 5, the day he was to report to the Dubois County Security Center, he failed to appear as ordered. He also failed to appear Tuesday in Dubois Superior Court for an initial revocation hearing on the State’s petition to revoke his probation in the case.
A warrant for Fisher’s arrest was issued and he was booked into the security center at 9:58 p.m. Tuesday.
On Wednesday, during a hearing, Fisher was ordered to serve the four days in the security center for failing to complete his 40 hours of community service and his next hearing on the motion to revoke his probation was set for April 22.
