Several defendants entered "not guilty" to their respective felonies Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.
Leandra M. Kimbro, 27, of Lorain, has an April 15 trial date on complicity to trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance in connection with an Aug. 6 incident.
Her co-defendant, Brandon R. Taylor, 24, also of Lorain, goes to trial May 20. He is charged with complicity to trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance.
If convicted, Kimbro and Taylor face six to 12 months behind bars.
Each defendant earlier posted a $10,000 bond. They are subject to random drug screens.
The other defendants who were arraigned Monday are:
• Randell T. Ladd, 30, of 7625 S. Ohio 269, Bellevue, goes to trial May 22 on one count each of theft of a credit card and theft. The felonies are in connection with a Dec. 24 incident.
Ladd is out on a personal recognizance bond. That means he signed a court document promising he would return for future hearings and didn't have to pay any money.
• Najee M. Louis, 21, of Sandusky, has a May 27 trial set on theft in connection with a Dec. 22 incident. He is out, having posted a $5,000 bond.
• Alaina L. Rowe, 26, of 117 W. High St., Plymouth, goes to trial May 29 on possession of cocaine in connection with an Aug. 22 incident. She earlier posted a $5,000 bond and also is subject to random drug screens.
