STANDISH — The man charged with supplying 11- and 12- year-olds with alcohol back in December has pleaded guilty to six counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Kedron made his plea Jan. 11, in front of Probate Chief Court Judge Richard Vollbach Jr. Kedron faces 90 days in jail and a $500 fine for each count

According to Standish Police Chief Mark Christian, Kedron is alleged to have given alcohol to seven minors on the evening of Friday, Dec. 3.

Kedron was originally charged with seven counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor, which is a misdemeanor.

Kedron was being held at the Arenac County Sheriff’s Department on a $50,000 or 10 percent cash-surety bond. Undersheriff Donald McIntyre said that Kedron was released on Jan. 13, on a personal recognizance bond.

Sentencing for Kedron will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 8.

Another interesting tidbit is Joshua Gibson, one of the men charged in the larceny of the elderly woman at Glenn's Market in Standish is also out on bond.

Earlier this week Judge Volback lowered mr. Gibson's bond from $50,000 to $10,000. Mr. Gibson is now out on the streets thanks to the lowered bond.

How about some mug shots of mr. Gibson so we, the people, will know when to hide.

The last post is totally inaccurate. Check your facts. Judge Vollbach actually INCREASED Gibson's bond from $5,000 to $10,000. If you are going to post something, make sure it is not lies!

ahh newswatch check district court as I did when I heard the bond was lowered and you will hear it was Judge Yenior who increased the domestic violence bond and issued the $50,000 bond for the larceny charge.

When Gibson went in front of Judge Yenior, HE INCREASED the bond for the domestic violence up to $10,000 and revoked the earlier bond because Gibson was charged with the larceny while he was out on the $5,000 bond for the domestic violence.

Then Judge Yenior gave Gibson a $50,000 bond for the larceny charge. On Monday Judge Volbach DECREASED the bond from $50,000 to $10,000. There is nothing on record for anyone asking for the bond to be lowered. He just did it.

Even the Bay City times reported the $50,000 bond for the larceny charge. Are they liars too?

Anyone who questions this can check the records for themselves with the District Court. Judge Vollbach only had Gibson in court one time, it was Tuesday. He increased bond from $5,000 to $10,000 and that was on the larceny case. Again, the records are public information!

I was in court the day Gibson and Janz went in front of Judge Yenior the first time. The judge revoked the earlier bond for the dom vio charge from $5,000 to $10,000 for Gibson. He has paid $250 and put a vehicle up for his bond. His family, his wife and some others I didn't know was there that day. His wife that was the victim in the dom vio case was asking the judge to let Gibson out on a pr bond. The judge then put a $50,000 bond for the stealing charge at Glenn's.

I was at the second hearing on Tuesday when Gibson went in front of the judge. he was in front of Volbach. Gibson didn't have a lawyer and no one asked for the bond for the stealing to be lowered. the judge just lowered it down to $10,000. Gibson got a bail bondsman and he is out on bond again. When I asked why the bond was lowered I was told that sometimes a family member will ask for the bond to be reduced and the judge lowers it.

if newswatch had dealings with Gibson, like I have and my family, they would know what he is really like. This is not good that his bond was lowered by Volbach when he was already on bond for dv and then was charged again for stealing.

if the paper is going to put pictures and print releases of Kedron then the paper should do the same for Gibson and Janz.
