Page denied shock probation

GLASGOW — Two months after being sent to a detention center as an adult, a youthful offender has been denied shock probation.

James Allen Page, 18, pleaded guilty on June 11, 2012, to second-degree robbery after he and Joseph Roger Arbogast robbed a convenience store at gunpoint. Page was 17 and Arbogast was 16 when they committed the October 2011 robbery of Zack’s Express Mart No. 3. Using police service weapons that belonged to Arbogast’s mother, Glasgow Police Department Detective Jennifer Arbogast, Page and Arbogast threatened the store clerk’s life and stole $300 to $400 in cash, cigarettes, cigars and the clerk’s cell phone. The two teens were charged as adults, originally with first-degree robbery, but were allowed to plead down to the second-degree robbery, a nonviolent crime. Page and Arbogast were sentenced Sept. 10, 2012, to 10 years in prison, subject to re-evaluation after each turned 18.

When Page turned 18 in November, his sentence was re-evaluated and upheld by Barren County Circuit Court Judge Phil Patton. After serving two months in jail following his 18th birthday, Page’s attorney, public defender Greg Berry, filed for shock probation on Jan. 15, 2013. Shock probation is a program that allows first-time offenders to be released from prison after serving only a short time.

Following Page’s request for shock probation, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Resa Gardner responded with a Jan. 17 motion to deny the shock probation.
