Proctorville man will not stand trial, judge rules

A judge ruled Wednesday that a Proctorville man is mentally ill and cannot stand trial for charges of abduction and aggravated menacing.

Steven Maynard, of 409 County Road 411, was ordered by Judge Scott Bowling to undergo treatment as well.

Maynard’s sister, Lisa Maynard testified that her brother was suffering from mental illness when he claimed that people were trying to steal his white blood cells and testosterone. He then put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her as well as her family and himself.

Steven Maynard admitted that most of what his sister said was true, though he denied ever putting a knife to her throat.

Judge Scott Bowling ordered that Maynard be treated in the least restrictive way possible.

Also in Common Pleas court Wednesday, a Proctorville woman was sentenced for violating community-controlled sanctions. Brittany Wilson, 24, of 2395 County Road 66 in Proctorville, was sentenced to 14 days in the county jail and ordered to undergo out patient drug counseling at Family Guidance.

“I’m concerned about you and I hope that this crossroads situation is a wake-up call to you,” Judge Charles Cooper told Wilson. “I’m especially concerned that after completing STAR you have backslidden.”

He asked Wilson to pay attention at counseling.

“Give it your very best for your own health and protection,” Cooper said.
