Paris woman sentenced for refusing to report to jail

Failing to report to jail as ordered did not keep a Paris woman from serving time.

Kassady C. Neibarger, 29, Paris, appeared in custody of the Edgar County Sheriff’s Department for the Oct. 2 criminal and traffic call in Edgar County Circuit Court and pleaded guilty to a Class 3 felony failure to report to a penal institution charge. She was sentenced to 60 days in jail with credit for 26 days previously served and another 60 days subject to stayed jail time with good conduct credit to apply, two years of conditional discharge, court costs and various state fees. In exchange for the plea, the state will not file a petition to revoke her probation sentence for a Class 2 felony burglary conviction.

In the burglary case, Neibarger was ordered to serve eight consecutive weekends in jail, but she did not report to the jail as ordered. Neibarger was remanded to custody to begin her jail sentence.
