From one substance abuse treatment program to another.
That's the news former Willard resident Bradley C. Jones, 39, received at his probation violation hearing Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.
Since Jones wasn't eligible for the Teen Challenge program in Youngstown, Judge Jim Conway ruled the defendant now must a complete four to six months in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF), a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education. Jones will be held in the Huron County Jail until he is transferred to a CBCF, which earlier accepted him.
"He is still on community control. His community control is being continued," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said after Monday's hearing. "He is on it until December 2015."
Jones earlier served 17 months in prison for two separate drug charges.
In mid-May, he pleaded guilty to one count each of trafficking in heroin for a Dec. 9, 2011 offense. Jones also was convicted of possession of heroin for a Dec. 21, 2010 incident.
During the possession case, the Huron County Sheriff's Office and Bellevue Police Department raided a Bellevue hotel. Officers seized a large amount of heroin, some prescription pills, suspected marijuana and various drug paraphernalia as evidence.
Moments after a mid-March 2012 hearing, Jones was arrested by a deputy in connection with testing positive for drugs. He had been in court to be arraigned on three counts of trafficking in heroin.
