A Pedro man arrested on drug charges and a Kentucky woman arrested in connection with a break-in were among those making appearances Wednesday in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court.
Virgil Reynolds, 54, of 352 Private Drive 4252, Pedro, pleaded guilty both to an indictment and a bill of information containing three drug charges. Judge Richard Walton sentenced him to four years community controlled sanctions under intensive supervised probation. He must also serve 60 days home confinement and surrender his driver’s license for six months. Walton also fined him a total of $8,750.
Also Wednesday, Jessica Dye, 27, of Ashland, Ky., was arraigned on one count of complicity to burglary. She pleaded not guilty through her attorney, Warren Morford, who asked for a lesser bond than the $50,000 proposed by Assistant Lawrence County Prosecutor Jeff Smith.

“My client is a young lady who has a five year old child. She would like to be out of jail not only to care for her child but to help me prepare for this case. It’s an unusual case. Her boyfriend is implicated and she had nothing to do with it,” Morford said.
In the end Judge Charles Cooper set bond at $50,000 cash or surety but said this could be revised later.
Also Wednesday, Peter S. Hammonds, 34, of 213 High St., Coal Grove, was arraigned on felony and misdemeanor counts of criminal non-support.
He pleaded not guilty through his attorney, Warren Morford. Walton set a $20,000 own recognizance bond and ordered Hammonds to return to court in two weeks for a pretrial conference.
Dan Craft, 45, of Huntington, W.Va., also was arraigned on felony and misdemeanor criminal non-support charges. He pleaded not guilty through Morford, who is also his attorney.
Walton set a $20,000 OR bond and ordered him to return to court in two weeks for a pretrial conference.
David Mollett, 25, of Haverhill, was arraigned on one count of burglary. He pleaded not guilty through his attorney, D.L. McWhorter. Cooper set bond at $50,000 and scheduled an Aug. 22 pretrial conference.
