Man who missed sentencing in custody

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department brought a man, who missed his sentencing date earlier this month, to the Dubois County Security Center from Clark County on Thursday on a failure-to-appear warrant.

The Jasper Police Department originally arrested Kieran L. Omer, 32, Clarksville, on Aug. 17 after receiving a report that Omer had entered the Dubois County Courthouse smelling like marijuana.

Omer consented to a vehicle search by officers, who reported finding marijuana and a plastic and glass smoking pipe containing burnt marijuana residue. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia and pleaded guilty to those offenses Aug. 29 in Dubois Superior Court.

Court documents allege Omer failed to report to the county probation department for a pre-sentence report and then failed to appear at his scheduled sentencing hearing Sept. 19.

A warrant for his arrest was issued last week and he was booked into the county security center at 6:09 p.m. Thursday.
