A Willard man admitted to four allegations of violating his probation Monday. He was sentenced to 22 months in prison.

Chad M. Conley, 25, of 437 E. High St., will serve 10 months behind bars because the court credited him with serving a total of one year from two previous convictions, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said. In one case, he was sentenced to up to six months in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF), a form of prison focusing on education and substance abuse treatment.

During Monday's hearing, Conley admitted to testing positive for opiates and Oxycontin and failing to do substance abuse counseling, Kasper said. He also failed to follow the orders of his probation officer and didn't make office visits.

Originally, Conley was sentenced June 27, 2006 to three years of probation, 100 hours of community service and was fined $500 for trafficking in heroin. Less than four months later, he received an identical sentence for a separate conviction of trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance.

In other court news:

The state withdrew its probation violation complaint Monday against Joseph W. Hardy, 47, of 671 Rome Greenwich Road, New London. His probation officer said Hardy complied with substance abuse counseling and paid all of his restitution, fines and costs. Kasper said Hardy was accused of testing positive for marijuana and failing to complete counseling.

On March 4, 2003, Hardy originally was sentenced to four months in the Huron County Jail with work release, five years of probation ordered to pay about $1,400 in restitution for attempted aggravated assault.

The court placed Andrew V. Hicks, 24, of 4094 Townline Road 12, Willard, on intensive supervision probation Monday in connection with failing to report to his probation officer. Kasper said Hicks has a 30-day jail sentence hanging over his head, which could be waived if he gets a job and keeps it for six months.

On June 27, 2006, Hicks was sentenced to three years of probation, 100 hours of community service and was fined $1,000 for complicity to trafficking in heroin. He also was ordered to participate in drug treatment court and had his driver's license suspended for six months.

"He did not do well in drug treatment court," Kasper said. The court then sent him to a CBCF, which he completed.

On Feb. 1, 2006, sheriff's deputies found between 10 and 50 doses of heroin behind the passenger seat in a vehicle during a Liberty Road, Willard, traffic stop near U.S. 224. Investigators said Hicks, the passenger, and his co-defendant were returning from Columbus after buying the drugs.

James M. Peak, 20, of 205 Center St., Bellevue, was sentenced Tuesday to three years of probation and up to six months in a CBCF for trafficking in drugs. He also was fined $500 and ordered to pay $90 in restitution to the Bellevue Police Department.

Peak sold hydrocodone tablets to a confidential informant in Bellevue, Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

DUH (Anonymous)

THE WILLARD COPS ONLY BUST WHO THEY WANT!!!!!!

to DUH (Anonymous)

that may be true also but the prosecutors and judges only sentence those they want to. I see why the cops have the attitude's they do. All the time investigating, following leads, plus setting up the narcs takes alot of time only to see the @$$holes out on the street the very next day doing it all over again. So why should they even bother??

and maybe (Anon...

if Dalton would have at least been on probation as he should have been and like his co-defendant he would be violated also?? Oh, but then he did have a charge in dec. for a needle and was still on bond from this charge and wasn't violated, didn't even have his bond revoked?? Thought that pretty much was a stipulation of a bond, to keep your butt out of trouble or it would be revoked? We want to know why there are all these special favors to this animal??

and maybe (Anon...

the police officers should be asking why do they walk after all the hours and money put into an investigation.

anyone notice (...

The Daltons are back in business. Wonder how long till they get busted again, or should I say if??? Real nice to see young kids going in and out, espically a couple that were just recently released from prison.

If you notice p...

then call the police and keep calling them they will get sick of getting called and do something about it.

anyone notice (...

no, I really doubt they give a d@mn. Why bust them because within 24 hours their back on the street doing it all over again. We need to start calling the prosecutor's and judges and tell them to stop letting them right back out. Make their bond so high they can't get it posted.

fyi (Anonymous)

I think its all one big game to all of them. And personally I'm pretty sick of it all. I say we need to do something about it, we the citizens of Willard. Any suggestions???

DRUGS IN WILLARD HAS GOTTEN NOTHING BUT WORSE AND WHY BECAUSE THE EXAMPLE UP ABOVE THEY DON'T GET ANY TIME FOR THERE ACTIONS. WE NEED TO WORK AS COMMUNITY TO BUST THESE PEOPLE BUT FIRST WE NEED OFFICERS OF WILLARD TO NOT BE COVERING FOR ANYONE EITHER..
