Suspect jailed after being arrested on probation violation warrant

Deputies arrested a probation violation suspect late Monday night.

Jason R. Wolford, 27, of 1223 Ramona Drive, Willard, was arrested on a Huron County Common Pleas Court probation violation warrant during a North Chenango Road, Wakeman, incident. Two Huron County sheriff's deputies made the arrest at 11:38 p.m. and transported Wolford to the Huron County Jail.

Wolford's probation violation hearing was scheduled for today, where attorneys were to address the issue of bond.

On Dec. 4, the former Norwalk resident was fined $1,000 for taking a television set from his mother's home May 4. Huron County Public Defender David Longo had referred to the crime as "marginally a burglary" because Wolford lived at his mother's residence part of the time and wasn't "strictly prohibited" from living there.

"I've made amends with my mother," Wolford said in December.

At the time of Wolford's sentence, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway said the defendant avoided any jail time because he was working full-time and addressing his substance abuse issues.

Wolford, who is on three years of intense probation, faces 18 months in prison for the suspected probation violation.

In May, Wolford was arrested after the Norwalk Police Department received a tip he was at a Jefferson Street mobile home park. He was wanted on a Richland County Sheriff's Office failure to appear warrant related to a drug-related offense.
