A parade of shackled defendants appeared before Judge Don Ash in Cannon County Circuit Court on Thursday, May 24 to enter guilty pleas to one or more of the charges they were facing.

The reason they were wearing shackles is because most of the defendants who had their cases adjudicated Thursday - 30 in total - were brought over to the Cannon County Courthouse from the county jail, where they had been staying since their arrest.
