A drug defendant must serve the remainder of his prison term for violating the terms of his probation.

Former Willard resident Bradley C. Jones, 40, was ordered Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court to serve the remainder of his original 17-month prison term.

"He has served approximately 15 months already," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said.

Jones violated his probation being convicted April 21 of criminal trespassing through Norwalk Municipal Court. Kasper said the defendant also tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine April 17 -- the same day the Willard Police Department investigated the trespassing incident.

Through Huron County Common Plea Court, Jones' underlying convictions were separate offenses of possession of heroin and trafficking in heroin.

On Dec. 10, 2012, Judge Jim Conway granted Jones early release from prison. As part of his three years of probation, he was ordered to complete the Teen Challenge program, an intensive, year-long, Christian-based treatment program for people of all ages with life-changing addictions.

On March 25, 2013, the judge ruled Jones was "unable to complete the Teen Challenge program, but in lieu agreed to complete a community-based corrections facility," according to court records. Defendants spend four to six months in a CBCF, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.

Well this comes as no surprise, Mr. Brad Jones. what a fake you are. You were in Teen Challenge, a christian based program. And you were a troublemaker there. You were sent out of there for smoking, and other things, . Please dont use Christianity, like this. You have fooled several people but not me. You have a long history and you have been in jail many times. I do not feel sorry for you. And dont say you had a bad childhood. Many people have grief, and sorrow in their life, and turn out to be good citizens. You chose drugs, and this is what happens to you. You might have fooled a few people, not me. Well you will have a long time in jail, to think about what you have done. The church people who were trying to help you get on the right path, need to stop helping you . You dont want help bad enough. You were given opportunites and messed up. As I read this article , I thought well going to PRISON AGAIN IS THE BEST THING .

togbert71 Sorry he should not have any chances. He had many opportunities, and said he was a Christian, and was going to church and change. He was using that as excuse. Teen Challenge is a wonderful program, but you have to listen to the Leadership of the program.
