The following information comes from public files in the 8th Circuit Court.

Katrina Dawn Fulton, 43, of the 1800 block of Poplar Street in Lexington, pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor B count of making a false report. Two court dismissed two other counts of making a false report. She was sentenced to two years on probation and a suspended execution of sentence of 90 days in the Ray County Jail. If Fulton completes probation successfully, she will not face incarceration, but the conviction will remain on her record.

Fulton was involved in a domestic-assault case in December 2017 that led to Ray County Memorial Hospital and the Henkel plant in Richmond being placed on lockdown. She claimed her husband, Chadwick Fulton, hurt her in a meth-induced rage and threatened to kill her.

Chadwick Fulton was originally charged with 13 counts of domestic assault — six felonies and seven misdemeanors — and was jailed on a $100,000 cash-only bond. After investigation, 8th Circuit Judge Kevin Walden declined to bind over 12 of the counts, leaving one felony E charge of domestic assault to which he pleaded guilty and received a suspended imposition of sentence with five years’ probation. If he successfully completes probation, the conviction will not appear on his record.
