A 70-year-old woman who was named the Cottonwood “Citizen of the Year” in 2016 has been sentenced in a case involving assault on a family of newspaper carriers. In May of 2017 a married couple and their adult son were delivering the Record Searchlight in the early morning hours. For several weeks they had been accused of stealing mail by Jason Wicks and his son Jeffery, of the “Cottonwood Community Watch”. Early one morning, the family was in front of a Main Street gas station sorting their papers before delivery, and the Wicks were parked nearby along with Carrolyn Barlow. The fight did not involve Barlow, who remained in the car, but she was convicted last month of misdemeanor assault. Jason Wicks was found guilty on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of assault likely to cause injury. He’ll be sentenced next month. Jeffrey was acquitted on all but one charge, on which the jury could not agree and the judge dismissed. Barlow was sentenced Monday to 60 days in jail and 3 years informal probation.
