Man admits battery, sentenced to probation

A judge placed a Morris man on probation for two years, with 25 days in the county jail, when he pleaded guilty in circuit court to a domestic battery charge.

Scot Meneese, 39, 101 Park, was also fined $400, ordered to pay $20 per month in probation fees, submit a DNA sample and pay the $200 fee. He was also ordered to have no contact with Sheila Dearth.

Charges of unlawful restraint and resisting police were dismissed.

Meneese was charged March 13 with forcing Dearth back into his vehicle by 1070 Twilight Drive.
