Crime & Courts for Dec. 9

Anna C. Clifford, 31, of Amisville was sentenced Tuesday by Rappahannock Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey W. Parker to two years of supervised probation, 100 hours of community service and loss of her driver’s license for six months.

The sentencing stemmed from a guilty plea by Clifford to a charge of felony possession of Oxycodone. She must undergo treatment and counseling as a condition of probation.

Kevin Shaun Clifford, 32, of Culpeper, was sentenced by Parker to a two-year jail term reduced to two months, plus two years supervised probation, participation in Narcotics Anonymous, loss of driver’s license for six months and outpatient drug counseling. The sentencing followed a guilty plea by Clifford to possession of Oxycodone.

James Robert Dodson, 56, 13206 Pullen Court, Culpeper, was sentenced to a two-year jail term on a felony charge of possession of Oxycodone. He was also sentenced to a concurrent 30-day jail term for possession of marijuana. Judge Parker suspended the jail terms and placed Dodson on two years probation. Dodson lost his driving privileges for two years.

Rappahannock County District Court Judge Stephen H. Helvin on Tuesday found Frances Foster, 73, not guilty of assault stemming from an altercation during the summer. Foster is the treasurer of Rappahannock County.

Foster testified she pushed back the hand of the complainant, Linda Gray, “after she started shaking her hand at me.” Gray was at a property on Fodderstack Road to meet an appraiser and said Foster reached into her car and bent her fingers back after asking what she thought she was doing.

The Rappahannock County Sheriff’s Office on Nov. 27 arrested Kayla Kidwell, 22, 14832 Lee Hwy., on a charge of assault and battery involving a family member.

On the same day, Deputy Angela Deavers responded to a possible auto accident on Fodderstack Road where she arrested Justin Scott Todd, 26, of Washington, for public drunkenness. — Roger L. Foster
