A Calhoun County man who admitted to passing drugs to a female inmate who was in Roane Circuit Court for a hearing was sentenced to home confinement.

Timothy Lee Tallhammer, 39, of Mount Zion pled guilty last month to delivery of methamphetamine to an inmate. A court bailiff immediately noticed the exchange and took the container from the inmate.

The recipient of the drugs was Heather Dawn Starcher, 30, of Orma.

Starcher was in court on destruction of property charges that allege she intentionally left the water running and stopped up the drain after she was evicted from her apartment on Main Street in Spencer, causing thousands of dollars in damages to the building.

She is currently serving a sentence at Lakin Correctional Center with a projected release date of June 2022.

Tallhammer appeared before Roane Circuit Judge Craig Tatterson last Wednesday, when he was sentenced to 1-to-5 years home confinement and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

Tatterson said Tallhammer could serve the sentence in Calhoun County and would have to pay home confinement fees and court costs. He was given 11 days credit for time already served.
