Probation is the official sentence for an Emporia man accused of using a machete during a domestic dispute this past summer.


Cory Coburn had pleaded no contest to aggravated domestic battery, criminal threat and possession of methamphetamine back in September. Following sentencing Tuesday, Coburn received 18 months probation with an underlying prison term of 44 months, meaning any probation violations will send him to prison.

Coburn was arrested at Newman Regional Health July 24 following a domestic incident earlier in the day in the 800 block of Clark Street. The incident prompted the hospital to implement additional security measures after Coburn brought the machete to the hospital's emergency room.

Besides battery, threat and drug possession charges, Coburn had originally been charged with aggravated use of a deadly weapon, domestic battery and criminal damage.
