Out-of-town drug traffickers sent to prison

Probation violators also in court


Drugs were among the chief issues that brought people to Lawrence County Common Pleas Court Wednesday.

A Troy couple were sentenced Wednesday for drug charges.

Stephanie Fleet, 26, of 415 Ohio Ave., and Jeremy Fleet, 32, of 1254 W. Main St., were each sentenced to 24 months in prison after they both pleaded guilty to charges of trafficking in drugs and complicity to trafficking in drugs.

Although Judge D. Scott Bowling fined each of them $10,000, attorney Mike Gleichauf, who represents Stephanie Fleet, said his client is indigent and he would ask that all fines and court costs be set aside.

Anna Dillon, 39, of 716 12th Ave., Huntington, W.Va., admitted she violated her probation, also known as community control sanctions, after she tested positive for drug use and failed to pay costs associated with the home confinement.

Bowling sentenced Dillon to 18 months in prison in spite of her plea she needed to be put in a mental hospital. She said she hears voices and has tried to commit suicide.

“I’m scared if I don’t get help I’m not going to make it,” Dillon told Bowling.

Bowling told her the women’s prison in Marysville does have the means to help her. Dillon was on probation for a burglary conviction.

Michael Litteral, 37, of 4083 Jennifer St., Grove City, admitted he violated his probation when he tested positive for marijuana and benzodiazepine use and stopped reporting to his probation officer.

Bowling sentenced him to seven months in prison. Litteral was on probation for an earlier drug conviction.

Amanda Roberts, 24, of 164 Township Road 1086, South Point, admitted she violated her probation by testing positive for marijuana and oxycontin use.

Bowling sentenced her to a rehabilitation program at Mended Reeds and ordered her to stay in jail until she is taken to that facility.

Bowling also sentenced Roberts to 200 hours of community service once she completes her rehabilitation program.
