A Willard man is serving a prison sentence for two controlled drug buys and a theft offense.

Antonio X. Kimbro, 21, formerly of 302 Maplewood St., was sentenced Aug. 29 to 17 months in prison for one count each of aggravated trafficking in drugs, trafficking in drugs and theft from a person in a protected class.

In another case heard Aug. 29, Dalton J. Parrott, 24, formerly of 56 W. Chestnut St., was sentenced to six months in prison for aggravated possession of drugs. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway also gave him an additional six months to be served consecutively for a post-release control violation.

Parrott has been in the Huron County Jail since Aug. 17 while Kimbro was in custody starting April 19.

In other hearings:

• Nicholas J. Amaya, 42, most recently of 1406 U.S. 20, was ordered Aug. 29 to pay $1,000 in restitution and fined $250 for complicity to receiving stolen property. Also as part of his three years of probation, he faces 45 days of discretionary jail time, which his probation officer can impose at any time — and in any increment — without a hearing. Conway also sentenced Amaya to 135 days in jail, with credit for time served.

• Owen J. Baker, 26, formerly of 104 W. Main St., North Fairfield, was sentenced Aug. 29 to spend four to six months in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF) for an undisclosed probation violation. His underlying conviction is attempted tampering with evidence. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.   

• Matthew K. Hall, 40, formerly of Delray, Fla., was sentenced Aug. 29 to spend four to six months in a CBCF for an undisclosed probation violation. Conway also ordered him to continue on community control. Hall’s underlying conviction is attempted corruption of another with drugs. He has been in jail since July 30.

• Adam N. James, 38, most recently of 13805 Riley Road, Milan, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated trafficking in 3-methylfentanyl with a juvenile present. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed a similar felony. James, who earlier posted a $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision, will be sentenced Oct. 25.

• Michael K. Luna, 63, who reported being homeless, but most recently of Willard, was sentenced Aug. 29 to spend four to six months in a CBCF for one count each of trafficking in marijuana and failure to appear on personal recognizance (P.R.) bond. Also as part of his three years of probation, he was fined $500 and must reimburse the Willard Police Department $50. Luna has a 90-day discretionary jail sentence hanging over his head. He has been in custody since April 21. A P.R. bond is a court document signed by defendants in which they promise to appear for future hearings without paying any money.

• Todd A. McCallister, 25, most recently of 4757 Wenz Road, Wakeman, was sentenced Aug. 29 to 30 days in jail for an undisclosed probation violation and will remain on community control. His underlying conviction is possession of drugs.

• Justin A. Morgan, 32, most recently of 23 E. Main St., Apt. A, New London, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated trafficking in 3-methylfentanyl. Conway remanded him to the custody of the Huron County Sheriff’s Office to complete a 45-day jail sentence for a Norwalk Municipal Court conviction of possession of drug abuse instruments. His felony sentencing hearing is Oct. 25.
