Drug convict gets jail term for fighting at a CBCF

A former Willard resident convicted of an oxycodone-related offense was sentenced Monday to 60 days in jail for violating his probation.

Jessie R. Gonzalez, 27, most recently of Attica, has been approved to be on the work release program through the Huron County Jail. He also faces an additional 90 days in jail, which his probation officer has the discretion of saying when the defendant has to serve it.

"He got kicked out of the CBCF for fighting," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said. "He did about two months in the CBCF before he was kicked out (Nov. 29)."

Defendants spend four to six months in a community-based corrections facility, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education. On Sept. 19, Gonzalez was ordered to complete a term at a CBCF.

At the end of July, Gonzalez pleaded guilty to possession of oxycodone. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of receiving stolen property, which related to the same Feb. 17 incident.

Also as part of his three years of probation, Gonzalez was fined $500 and forfeited the $910 seized during the traffic stop by the Willard Police Department.

Gonzalez earlier served a 150-day jail term for one count each of aggravated menacing and criminal trespassing. The sentence ended Sept. 20.

The misdemeanors were for the defendant making threatening comments during a Feb. 22 incident investigated by the Plymouth Police Department. A prosecutor said earlier Gonzalez made the threats to the victims while holding a gun at his side when he "forced his way into the apartment while the occupants were present." Police handled the case as a burglary at first.
