Rowe was sentenced to four years on each of the assault and aggravated burglary charges, 11 months for violating the protective order and 90 days in jail for the criminal damaging charge, with all sentences running concurrently.

An Ironton man was sentenced to 45 days in the Lawrence County Jail for violating the terms of his probation. John E. Reynolds, 36, of 2216 North Fifth St., was originally sentenced to four years in prison in May 2002 for a third-degree child endangerment conviction. But he was granted a judicial release in November 2002. At that time, he was ordered to serve three years community controlled sanctions. On October 26, he was arrested on a domestic violence charge and tested positive for cocaine.

Reynolds was given credit for 16 days already served in the Lawrence County Jail.

If he violates the terms of his sanctions, he could be sentenced to 3 years and 4 1/2 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay court costs.
