Probation revoked for Scranton man; Topeka man convicted of intent to distribute marijuana

A Scranton man had his probation revoked today and was ordered to serve a 27-month prison sentence.

Robert Baker II, 25, Scranton, appeared in Osage County District Court June 2 on a motion to revoke his probation due to his conviction of another crime in Shawnee County.

In 2010, Baker was convicted of residential burglary and sentenced to 27 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections for a crime that occurred in Scranton on Dec. 15, 2008. At his sentencing in March of 2010, Baker was placed on 24 months of probation, but in February of 2012, while on probation, he was arrested in Shawnee County for felony fleeing and attempting to elude police officers. Baker was convicted of that offense and sent to the Kansas Department of Corrections to serve a prison sentence.

Today, Baker’s probation was revoked in his Osage County case and he was ordered to serve his original 27-month prison sentence in the Kansas Department of Corrections.

In another hearing today in Osage County District Court, Brady Nemnich, 20, Topeka, entered a plea of no contest to possession of marijuana with intent to sell or distribute and was convicted.

Nemnich was stopped for speeding on Dec. 8, 2013, in Osage County, and a subsequent search led to the discovery of 82.46 grams of marijuana.

Nemnich is scheduled to be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. July 7, 2014, and remains free on bond until that time.
