Local/Kansas 2 The Salina Journal Friday, January 31,1986 Page 12 Briefly Man sentenced for sexual battery A Salina man convicted of aggravated sexual battery of a pre- teenage Salina girl was sentenced Thursday to three to 10 years in prison. Saline County Associate Judge Gene Penland denied probation for Mark L. Avise, 24,1333 Ponca. Avise originally was charged with indecent liberties with a child, but pleaded guilty to the reduced charge. The incident occurred Nov. 14. Penland told Avise the girl was not seriously hurt, "but certainly she suffered mentally and traumatically as a result of your despicable act." Probation was opposed by the victim, her mother, Salina police and the prosecution, Penland said. He told Avise, however, that he would review the sentence after Avise is evaluated by the Kansas State Reception and Diagnostic Center in Topeka. Enrollment at Tabor is Monday HILLSBORO — Registration for spring semester classes at Tabor College is Monday in the registrar's office in the administration building.

Disaster team meeting is tonight A meeting for the formation of a community disaster team is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today at the Salvation Army, 1137 N. Santa Fe. Salvation Army Capt. Robert Forney said members of the team will be trained to deal with disaster problems. Salman acquitted in child care case A Salina woman was acquitted Thursday of a misdemeanor charge of endangering a child in her care after a judge condemned her actions but ruled she was not guilty of a criminal offense. Saline County Associate Judge Gene Penland said Kelly Davis, 23, exercised poor judgment in leaving a 13-month-old boy with a 5-year- old at a neighbor's home. Davis testified the 5-year-old told his mother, who often babysat for the baby, would be home shortly. Davis said she had just heard that her son was hospitalized in another state and she needed to go to a friend's house to learn more about his condition. Christa Whitmer, mother of the 13-month-old, testified she found her son crying and alone in the living room of her neighbor's house an hour and a half after Davis said she had left the baby there. Filing of rape charge expected A Salina man is expected to be charged today with one count of rape in connection with a Tuesday incident involving a Salina woman. Hector Martinez, 45,1205 Gypsum, is scheduled to appear in court with his attorney. The woman, in her late teens, reported to police about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday that she had been raped at her residence. Martinez was questioned by police and released. The case was referred to Saline County Attorney Mickey Mosier, who said Thursday he had decided to file a charge of rape after studying the police reports. Hess gets probation, but troubles not over OLATHE (AP) — Legal problems mounted Wednesday for former Kansas lawmaker Paul Hess, who was given probation in Johnson County for embezzlement and then charged in Linn County with fraudulently obtaining a $43,000 loan. Hess, a three-term senator and once the chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, also was named in a civil suit Wednesday in Johnson County in which two former clients sought damages in connection with the embezzlement. Hess, 37, appeared before Johnson County Associate District Judge Gerald Hougland, who ordered a prison term of one to two years on the embezzlement charge and then placed him on probation. The former lawmaker pleaded guilty earlier in Johnson County to taking money from an insurance settlement intended for two clients. He surrendered his license to practice law Tuesday as part of a plea agreement. Linn County Attorney Richard Smith said Hess is charged in a warrant with forging the signatures of his estranged wife, Anne Oliver Hess, and her mother, Maxine Oliver, on a promissory note and mortgage used to secure a $43,000 bank loan in June 1984. The loan from the First State Bank of Pleasanton was to be used to repay several unsecured loans, Smith said. Authorities discovered the alleged forgery this month, the county attorney said. In the embezzlement case, Randall and Dorothy Emery retained Hess to prosecute a personal injury claim that resulted in a cash settlement. He was accused of embezzling part of the insurance settlement. The Emerys filed a civil suit in Johnson County District Court seeking $600,750 in punitive damages and $60,000 in actual damages. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Hess made restitution of $20,000 to the Emerys. In exchange for the plea agreement, the prosecution dropped a second felony theft count against Hess. Johnson County District Attorney Moore did not make a recommendation on sentencing. He faced up to five years in prison. Hess did not make any statement during the sentencing hearing, gave brief answers to questions and declined comment after it was over. Hess served three, four-year terms in the Senate representing a Wichita area district after an earlier two- year term in the House. In 1984 he moved his residency from Sedgwick County to Johnson County and tried unsuccessfully to win the GOP nomination to the Senate from his new district. Last summer complaints were filed against him and an investigation was launched by the state Board for the Discipline of Attorneys. The preliminary hearing for two Salina men accused of raping and severely beating a Salina woman Jan. 1,1984, has been rescheduled for Feb. 28 in Saline County District Court. The hearing for Loren K. Pierce, 26, 915 N. Ninth, and Nathan L. Haggard, 25, 1227 N. Ninth, was scheduled for today before Associate Judge Gene Penland. But Pierce's attorney, Jim Sweet, requested Thursday that the hearing be postponed for 30 days. Pierce and Haggard are charged with aggravated burglary, rape, aggravated sodomy and aggravated battery. Sweet asked for the additional time because the alleged assault occurred more than two years ago, laboratory reports are not yet available and because of the seriousness of the charges. Saline County Attorney Mickey Mosier argued that he and his witnesses were prepared for the hearing and would like to proceed. "A terrible crime was committed on Jan. 1, 1984, which the state has spent funds investigating and will continue to spend funds on," Mosier said. Penland said he reluctantly would grant the postponement, but that no further delays would be approved. Haggard remains in the Saline County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond awaiting sentencing on a previous rape conviction. Pierce is free on a $60,000 property bond.
