His daughter-in-law and former Jail Matron Shauna Hawkins was sentenced to 58 days of home detention for her conviction on a Class-A misdemeanor charge of sexual misconduct Thursday for getting involved in a sexual tryst with a Lawrence County inmate.

Finally, a Jasper man was sentenced on federal charges relating to child pornography. 42-year-old Michael Muncy of Jasper pled guilty earlier to distributing, receiving and possessing child pornography as the result of an investigation by the FBI and Jasper City Police.
