Man pleads guilty to bail jumping, doesn’t show up for sentencing

RICHMOND — A man who failed to show up for his sentencing on a bail-jumping charge was arrested Friday and served with several warrants, Richmond police report.

Shawn W. Noe, 27, Robbinsville Loop, was charged with failure to appear in that case, and he also was served an indictment warrant for another set of first-degree bail jumping and first-degree persistent felony offender charges.

A Madison grand jury indicted Noe in June 2012 on the first set of bail-jumping charges, and he was released on bail at arraignment, according to an RPD report.

Noe pleaded guilty Aug. 13 to bail jumping and the PFO charge was dismissed.

He was scheduled for sentencing Jan. 10, but he did not appear. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest, the RPD reported.

Shortly after Noe failed to appear for his sentencing, he was again indicted on charges for bail jumping and first-degree persistent felony offender.

Officers found Noe on Friday at the Red Roof Inn, and he was taken into custody.

A woman with him also was arrested on the strength of a failure-to-appear warrant from Madison District Court. She additionally faces a misdemeanor charge of third-degree possession of a controlled substance because police reported finding half a Xanax pill in her purse.

The total amount taken is believed to be between $7,500 and $10,000.

A resident in the 800 block of Rock Way reported that a silver iPod, worth $100, and $4 in change was stolen from his parked vehicle during the night. There were no signs of forced entry.
