A local man who is "a slave to his addition" has been sent to prison for violating his probation.

Former New London resident Kenneth K. Low III, 23, was sentenced to one year in prison Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

In handing down the sentence, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway followed the joint recommendations of Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper and Huron County Public Defender David Longo.

Low will receive credit for serving three months of the four-month sentence he currently is serving in the Erie County Jail when he goes to prison.

Jail records indicate Low came into the jail Aug. 12 for a possession of heroin case out of Erie County Common Pleas Court.

Low's underlying conviction is complicity to burglary. He and his co-defendant, Corey R. Nau, 22, of New London, stole a radar detector, some tractor weights and a couple of gas cans from an attached garage Aug. 2, 2010. Nau, in January 2011, was sentenced to 90 days in jail on the work release program and ordered to pay $2,180 in restitution to the victim.

At Monday's hearing, Low, now of Sandusky, admitted to violating his probation by possessing drug paraphernalia and heroin during an Oct. 13 incident investigated by the Sandusky Police Department. He also failed to notify his probation officer about it.

His probation officer told Conway that Low "has had quite bumpy ride" while under two years of community control sanctions, which included the theft of electronics in Maumee. However, she said she believes the defendant could be a "different person" 10 years from now if he puts his mind to it.

"He's a slave to his addiction, in short," the probation officer said.

Low added he had a drug relapse "about a month and a half" after being released from a CBCF in August 2011.

"Obviously, I have a drug problem," he said. "I think I should see the inside of a state facility. I took a CBCF for granted."

I would rather he be addicted to "Math," than "Meth!"

As I stated in another comment box...the term shanghai`d stems from the use of Laudanum ..created from the poppy flower to treat TB..it was discovered that once a person started the drug they lost all inhabition to live ...often times taking own life for the need of the drug.
It was outlawed and later reintroduced to the public as morophine ...sold needle and all at sears robuck...and then it too outlawed and reserved only for hospital use... ..then came Herion ...all from a flower ...and all, once introduced to the body... the brain no longer had control...the body took over with a need for the drug..SHANGHAI~D...!!
