An drug defendant faces a discretionary jail term as part of his three years of basic probation.
The probation officer for Edward V. Sokolowski Jr., 52, of Vickery, has the right to impose the 60-day sentence at any time. The defendant was fined $250 Monday.
In mid-August, Sokolowski pleaded guilty to possession of oxycodone for an Oct. 18, 2011 incident. Huron County Public Defender David Longo told the Reflector he couldn't recall the circumstances of the incident.
During the Aug. 13 plea hearing, Longo asked Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway if he would consider placing the defendant in a community-based correctional facility due to Sokolowski leading a law-abiding life for 32 years since his last unspecified felony conviction in Erie County. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.
