CCS violation cases heard in court

An Ironton woman was found guilty of violating the terms of her community-controlled sanctions.

Following a CCS violation trial Wednesday during Lawrence County Common Pleas Court, Judge D. Scott Bowling found that Glenna Boothe, 27, of 651 Township Road 2745, Ironton, was in violation because she was discharged from the STAR community justice program. Boothe was sentenced to 17 months in prison.

Lynne Stewart, adult probation officer, testified that she received notification from STAR that Boothe had been discharged unsuccessfully for making threats of violence.

After her sentencing, her attorney Mike Gleichauf requested the court show leniency to Boothe.

Bowling replied that he would only show leniency to Boothe if she had good behavior. She may be considered for a judicial release in that case, he said.

Frank Todd Hill, 38, of 1097 County Road 1, South Point, admitted he violated the terms of his community-controlled sanctions. Hill was sentenced to continue his community-controlled sanctions and to successfully complete the STAR community justice program.

Wilkes, 46, of 6428 Beechmont Avenue, Cincinnati, denied he violated the terms of his community-controlled sanctions by failing to report to adult probation, and by failing to pay child support and court costs.

Lewis argued that he had a prescription for the oxycodone, but he could not produce the prescription, Lawrence County Assistant Prosecutor Brigham Anderson said. Bowling modified Lewis’s bond to $100,000 of his own recognizance or $500,000 property and set a CCS trial for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
