Clay County Courtroom

Last week District Judge John Bosch showed mercy in sentencing a man who required a lengthy hospital stay due to an attempt to take his own life.

Bosch sentenced Timothy Clark, 64, to the mitigated sentence, which is the minimum amount he could have sentenced him without a departure from Clark’s plea deal. In March Clark pleaded no contest to possession of oxycodone, for which Judge Bosch sentenced him to serve 68 months in prison for.
