• Lavar C. Moore, Elkhart, appeared on two charges of violating his probation. Moore was convicted in Cook County, Ill. on a charge of aggravated sexual assault and was supposed to notify his probation officer of his address and refrain from using drugs.

Moore admitted in court that he gave a Mishawaka address to his probation officer while he was living with his father on Middlebury Street in Elkhart. He also tested positive for cocaine use.

Shewmaker asked that the county corrections department do an assessment of Moore’s cases.
