A Paris man who pleaded guilty to sexual solicitation and drug charges was among several defendants who pleaded guilty during Monday’s session of Henry County Circuit Court.

Cases involving defendants not being held in the Henry County jail were heard in the main courtroom of the county courthouse, while cases involving prisoners were heard in jail’s conference room.

This was done because the air-conditioning unit for the upstairs of the courthouse had to be removed to replace a portion of the roof.

Timmy Lee Olive, 59, of 126 Broken Arrow Drive in Paris was among the prisoners who pleaded guilty at the jail.

Olive pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver and to attempted solicitation of a minor to observe sexual conduct. He was sentenced to eight years in the Department of Correction on the drug charge and fined $2,000.

He was sentenced to serve an additional four years in the DOC on the solicitation charge and ordered to register as a sexual offender. Olive’s sentences will be served concurrently and split with one year in continuous confinement and the balance on supervised probation.

Olive has the option to complete a long-term program of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in exchange for day-to-day jail credit. He has credit for 109 days he has already spent in jail.

In another case, Kiser James Mahan, age and address unknown, offered to plead guilty, but Judge Donald Parish did not accept his guilty plea. Mahan was instead placed on deferred probation which means if he successfully completes the probationary period of three years the charges against him will be expunged.

Mahan had been charged with possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of a deadly weapon with intent to go armed during the commission of a dangerous felony, and simple possession of a controlled substance.

Mahan will pay a fine of $2,000 on the drug charge.
