Last November, Deputy Eric Eversole arrested Dollie Cooper, 27, and Scotty Davis, 31, after the officer arrived at their home to find the couple either asleep or unconscious and under the influence of prescription pills. At the time of the arrest, there were three children in the home ranging in age from one month to seven years.
Recently, the pair pled guilty to child neglect creating risk of injury before Judge Will Thompson in Boone County Circuit Court.
After sentencing the pair to a term of up to five years in custody, the judge suspended their sentence and ordered the Cooper and Davis to submit to random drug screens and placed them on supervised probation for a term of up to five years.

Man sentenced for 2006 shooting
After nearly five years, the second member of a pair charged with shooting into a Wharton home has been sentenced.
In July 2006, Kedron Setser and Megan Browning were arrested and charged with wanton endangerment and felony conspiracy for allegedly shooting into the home of Deputy Josh Weagel, of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department. At the time, only Weagel’s then fiancé was home, and the bullet lodged itself in a wall.
The pair were quickly arrested and indicted early in 2007. There has been no clear motive stated publicly for the shooting.
Last year, Megan Browning entered a guilty plea to her role in the shooting, and Setser was back in court on June 30th.
Setser, of Spring Hollow, was sentenced by Judge Jay Hoke for his guilty plea to wanton endangerment with a firearm and felony conspiracy in connection with the shooting. Hoke sentenced the man to five years for wanton endangerment and 1-5 years for conspiracy. Judge Hoke then suspended his sentence and placed Setser on five years probation and two years home confinement.
