DOTHAN — Trussville’s municipal judge, as a specially appointed judge, found a Dothan bondsman guilty of two counts of second-degree unlawful imprisonment Monday, stemming from an incident that occurred June 4 in which two men were chained to the city courtroom door, according to the Dothan Eagle.
Judge Carl Chamblee Jr. sentenced Rickey Stokes, owner and operator of A Advantage Bonding, to 30 days in jail, then suspended the sentence to 10 days. Stokes was also ordered to pay a $500 fine for each count and was sentenced to two years probation, according to the Dothan Eagle.
Stokes will appeal the verdict to Houston County Circuit Court.
