Drug, endangerment, charges send two to prison
06/08/2021

(KAIR)--Two Atchison residents, arrested as part of a late 2020 drug investigation, are going to prison.

That's according to Atchison County Attorney Sherri Becker who, in a release, says that an Atchison County Sheriff's investigation led to the search of a residence on December 30, and to the arrests of Demarko McClenton and Bailey Walker. Both were arrested on drug-related charges following the discovery of what Becker calls "evidence consistent with drug distribution," including methamphetamine, digital scales, and plastic baggies. A small child was also living in the home at the time of the search.

Both McClenton and Walker pled guilty to charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and aggravated child endangerment.

In April, McClenton was sentenced in Atchison County District Court to nearly 5 years in prison. He will serve the first 51-months for the drug charges and 6-months for child endangerment, with both sentences running consecutive to each other.

On Monday, Walker was sentenced in Atchison County District Court to nearly 6-years in prison, with her first 64-months be served for the drug charges and 6-months for child endangerment, with her sentences also running consecutively.

Becker, in the release, explains that while both McClenton and Walker were convicted of the same crimes, their sentences are slightly different due to their past criminal history scores.
