Two men were sentenced to prison terms for violation of terms of previously granted probation in Tama County District Court in Toledo during the last week of December by Judge Mitchell E. Turner.
Rogelio Guevara Jr., 30, addresses of Tama and Marshalltown, was sentenced to three, 10-year terms to be served consecutively.
He originally pled guilty to charges of possession of more than five grams of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, perjury and three counts of forgery filed by Tama Police on February, 2010, and neglect of a dependent person, filed by Toledo Police in September, 2010.
In being cited for probation violations, he was accused of bonding out of the Tama County Jail on Aug. 16, 2012, and subsequently being in the company of his girl friend in Des Moines who was stopped by police there and charged with felony drug charges.
Douglas Harry Hala, 38, Tama, was sentenced to three, two-year prison terms to be served consecutively after being found in violation of probation. The original charges stemmed from a police pursuit in June 1, 2012, which resulted in Hala being cited for 2nd offense drunken driving, eluding and assault with a weapon. He was charged by the Tama County Sheriff's Office in the 200 block of West 4th Street in downtown Tama.
He allegedly drove more than 25 miles over the speed limit during the chase and drove his car at Meskwaki Nation Tribal Police Officer Kenneth Raymond Brady without swerving.
