Alleged city center vandal incompetent

An Ironton man who pleaded insanity after vandalizing the city center was declared incompetent to stand trial.

A mental evaluation of Willard Large, 62, of 2603 N. Second St., was admitted into evidence Wednesday in Judge Charles Cooper’s courtroom.

Court Clinic Forensic Services performed the evaluation and said Large was incompetent to stand trial at this time, but could likely be restored to competence following treatment.

Large, who is charged with a fourth-degree count of vandalism and fifth-degree breaking and entering of the city building and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damaging will be transported to Summit Behavioral Healthcare.

Large was arrested in late June after he allegedly gained entry to the city building by throwing a bench through a window. He also allegedly damaged about nine other windows once inside the building, as well as some drywall and doors.

The criminal damaging charges stem from Large allegedly breaking into the Fraternal Order of Police’s weight room and throwing weights out of a window, at least one landing on a car.

In other cases:

• Wilma McClain, 59, of 107 Roberts St., South Point, pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree count of trafficking in drugs. Cooper ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for Aug. 27.

• Zachary Corn, 21, of 1308 S. First St., Ironton, pleaded guilty to two fourth-degree counts of trafficking in drugs. Cooper ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for Aug. 27.

• Nada Jenkins, 44, of 6640 State Route 141, Kitts Hill, was sentenced to four years community control sanctions under intensive supervised probation, STAR, a $2,500 fine and a six-month driver’s license suspension. If she fails to follow her probation orders, she could be sentenced to prison for up to 17 months.

Jenkins previously pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree count of trafficking in drugs.
