Man gets two years for CCS violation

Published 12:00am Sunday, September 4, 2011

An Ironton man will spend two years in prison for a community-control sanctions violation.

Jeffrey Shope, 43, of 2434 S. Eighth St., Ironton, admitted to the CCS violation Wednesday in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court.

Shope had previously denied the violation on the grounds of incompetence. However, an evaluation found that he is competent.

Judge Charles Cooper sentenced Shope to two years in prison.

In other cases:

• Gregory Spears Jr., 22, of 3116 S. Fourth St., Ironton pleaded guilty to breaking and entering and receiving stolen property. Cooper sentenced Spears to a total of six months in prison.

• Timothy Smith, 32, of 54 Private Drive 70, South Point, pleaded not guilty to unlawful sexual misconduct with a 13-year-old girl.

Cooper continued from a lower court a $50,000 cash or surety bond and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Wednesday.

• Michael Adkins-Jenkins, 24, of 1709 Clements St. Apt. 3E, Ashland, Ky., pleaded not guilty to theft, misdemeanor theft, criminal damaging and criminal trespass.

Cooper set bond at $10,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Wednesday.

• Paul Moore Jr., 43, of 640 Roby Road, Huntington, W.Va., pleaded not guilty to aggravated robbery. Cooper set bond at $200,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Sept. 14.

• Joshua Wiseman, 27, of 478 Private Drive 13, Ironton, pleaded not guilty to aggravated robbery and tampering with evidence. Cooper set bond at $200,000 and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Wednesday.

• Johnny D. Lewis, 28, of 6351 County Road 12, Proctorville, pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest, breaking and entering and two counts of receiving stolen property. Cooper set bond at $15,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pretrial for Sept. 14.

• Joseph A. Barker, 31, of 317 Neal Ave., Ironton, pleaded not guilty to theft, failure to comply with the order of signal of a police officer, two counts of misuse of a credit card, and two counts of forgery.

Cooper set bond at $20,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Sept. 14.

• Donny Cremeans, 33, of 1101 Township Road 199, Pedro, pleaded not guilty to unauthorized use of a vehicle, domestic violence and felonious assault. Cooper set bond at $50,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pretrial hearing for Sept. 14.

• Camron E. Blake, 27, of Huntington, W.Va., pleaded not guilty to one count of intimidation. Blake entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Cooper set bond at $100,000 cash or surety. A pretrial hearing will be set after the court receives a report from Blake’s upcoming evaluation, Cooper said.

Ronnie Rowe, 58, of 92 Private Road 2567, County Road 27, Ironton, was found to be incompetent to stand trial.

Rowe had previously pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to burglary, two counts of assault on a police officer and criminal damaging. An evaluation of Rowe from Court Clinic Services found that he is not competent, Cooper said. Rowe will be admitted to a facility for restoration of competency, the judge said.
