Tenpenny Pleads To Six Of 13 Charges


A Woodbury man who was facing over a dozen charges related to drugs, theft and weapons pled guilty to six of them in Cannon County Circuit Court on Thursday.

Jason Todd Tenpenny entered best interest pleas of guilty to Manufacture of Methamphetamine, Manufacture of Marijuana, Theft Over $10,000 and to three counts of Theft Over $1,000.

Tenpenny received 12-year suspended sentences on the methamphetamine and marijuana manufacture convictions.

He received 4-year suspended sentences on each of the theft convictions.

Tenpenny was ordered to pay a total of $4,000 in fines, was assessed court costs on each count, and was ordered to pay restitution to the victims.

Circuit Court Judge Don Ash placed Tenpenny on Community Corrections for a total of 16 years and ordered him to perform 200 hours of community service and to receive alcohol and drug treatment at an inpatient or outpatient facility for not less than one year.

Tenpenny had earlier pled guilty to one of the charges against him in connection to the incident, Theft Under $500, and is serving a 6-month sentence in the Cannon County Jail.
