For the third time since her June 2015 conviction on 22 counts of malicious destruction of property in the Town of Berlin, Jordan Denton was scheduled to appear in District Court last Friday for a violation of probation hearing, but didn’t show up.
Her lawyer, Anders Randrup, said despite several attempts to contact his client, he had not spoken with her before the hearing. Deputy State’s Attorney Paul Haskell said he’d spoken with Denton’s probation officer, Michelle Peeples, and was told she may be seeking treatment for a personal issue.
Randrup said he had no other details.
Haskell told the court he wanted it to know what he knew.
District Court Judge Gerald Purnell said the information, scant as it may have been, was sufficient to grant a delay until July 21.
