Woman gets 3 years for drug charge

A Kentucky woman was sentenced to three years in prison Wednesday after admitting to a meth-related drug charge.

Rhonda Greenhill, 38, of 72 Heffs Lane, Grayson, pleaded guilty to a third-degree count of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, as well as a misdemeanor count of theft from Walmart.

“Convicting me isn’t going to do anything to stop the meth abuse that is going on in the county,” Greenhill said. “… But thank you for your leniency.”

In addition to prison time, Judge Charles Cooper also sentenced the woman to pay a $5,000 fine and suspended her driver’s license for one year.

In other cases:

• Clayton Pate, 30, of 421 Private Road 1385, Ironton, pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree count of assault on a police officer and misdemeanor aggravated menacing.

Cooper sentenced the man to one year in prison.

• Bridget Stump, 28, of 216 A. Gullet Road, Franklin Furnace, was sentenced to four years community control sanctions under intensive supervised probation for a fifth-degree count of trafficking in drugs, to which she previously pleaded guilty.

Cooper also sentenced the woman to pay a $1,250 fine, suspended her driver’s license for six months and ordered her to continue outpatient treatment.

• Gregory Riggs, 24, 7685 State Route 243, South Point, was arraigned on a second-degree burglary, to which he pleaded guilty. He also denied CCS violations.

Judge D. Scott Bowling set bond at $10,000 cash or surety plus $10,000 own-recognizance and GPS monitoring. A pretrial was set for May 7.

• Heather Martin, 34, of 403 Fourth St. E., South Point, admitted CCS violations and was sentenced to seven months in prison.
