Judge grants drug defendant intervention and treatment

Man and former girlfriend were arrested on drug trafficking charges.

A former Willard man could avoid a conviction on two drug charges if he successfully completes a certified substance abuse treatment program and doesn't violate his probation.

Columbus resident Jeremy D. Robinson, 23, must reimburse the Huron County Sheriff's Office $120 during his three years of intensive probation. The restitution covers the cost of drug testing. Robinson, who is subject to random drug screens, also must verify/and or obtain his GED.

Robinson and his former girlfriend, Arielle A. Aldrich, 23, now of Indiana, were arrested Oct. 16 when the sheriff's office plus the Willard and Monroeville police departments conducted an investigation about suspected drug trafficking.

Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said deputies had set up a controlled buy and the seller was Aldrich.

"She acknowledged the two of them used heroin and were involved in this endeavor," Kasper said.

The buy-bust happened on Walton Avenue in Willard. Authorities have said Aldrich sold two bindles of heroin to the confidential informant and was arrested near where the transaction happened. Investigators seized numerous syringes and other suspected drug paraphernalia during a search of Aldrich's then-Myrtle Avenue residence. Police contacted Huron County Children Services because Aldrich and Robinson's infant son lived there.

In Robinson's bedroom, officers found suspected heroin, some cotton and bindles, Kasper said. The prosecutor said a lab test determined there were trace amounts of heroin and cocaine in the cotton.

"He was cooperative with officers. He admitted he had used heroin (Oct. 16)," Kasper added.

Robinson is charged with one count each of possession of cocaine and possession of heroin. He appeared in Huron County Common Pleas Court for a hearing about intervention Thursday. Judge Jim Conway granted Robinson intervention and ruled the defendant had started treatment on his own.

In mid-March, Aldrich pleaded guilty to trafficking in heroin. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed one count each of possession of heroin and possession of cocaine. Aldrich, who is out on bond despite not appearing her pre-sentence interview twice, will be sentenced June 19.

They both waste the air we breath. They both will never change and will always be junkies. And we will see these two again for violating there probation. She sleeps with anything that has drugs while he goes and gets high. Pathetic people.

Korrupttown88 you are a worthless human being people like you should do the world a favor and end it all! For you are too perfect for this world and I'll all but welcome to meet with you and discuss this further! Don't hide behind the name!

These people are scum, you must be scum too. Korrupttown88 speaks truth. These turds will od eventually anyway bro.

Korrupttown88

Awww did I hurt someone's feelings for speaking the truth? Obviously you are a relative of one of the two. I would assume one of his. Let me guess.. He does no wrong and he's a good boy? Keep thinking that while he has that needle in his arm or that crack pipe to his mouth.

believe it

Gotta agree with Korrupttown88 here, they are just flat out losers that bring nothing to society. These are the people that the taxpayers will be paying for since they will probably be on some type of assistance most of their lives, or in jail.

Korrupttown88

Justlisten and believe it... I most certainly agree with both of you. They both will never change there loser lifestyle that they live and they go around telling everyone they are clean.. Sorry they are far from clean. They don't want to change how they live. One of them will eventually OD or they will both be junkies the rest of there life while going in and out of jail and prison.

Learn how to spell while your defending your junkie relatives.

You can only know someone if you do the same things as they do? I know my neighbors, but do not do the same things. I know some of the parents at my children's school but do not do the same things they do. I do NOT know these two but they are druggies and sound like they are not really people I want to know or get to know.
And as far as alias, you have one too NoneTheLess.

It all boils down to this mind over matter: I don't mind because none of you matter. Opinions are like a**holes everyone has one and none of yours matter. Get a life, obviously you have none because all you do is make negative comments, Grow up!

Name is David and I'm willing to give my alias up to meet you and help you understand the hard knocks of life. Goes for any of you mis guided buffoons.

ladydye_5

My name is Diane...I have had hard knocks too, but I have made the CHOICE to NOT DO DRUGS to deal with it. Lots of people have hard knocks, can go through life with difficult things, deal with horrible circumstances and still do not turn to drugs. If you want to call those of us who can actually deal with life buffoons go ahead, I have been called ALOT worse.

justlisten

My names David too and I have junkie relatives. Can't spell to save my life either. I act tough on newspaper forums when I get butt hurt. If you guys don't like my junkie relatives than I'll beat you. Im super tough as if you haven't noticed already......#whitetrashdavid

Korrupttown88

Negative comments? You mean factual comments? Have they done anything productive since they were arrested? They are still doing drugs so obviously getting busted didn't change them in any way.

believe it

I know for a fact that Jeremy has also been caught stealing so he's doing more than just drugs. Loser is all he is.

Korrupttown88

Oh I already know. He puts this big show on like he's clean but yet he's out smoking crack with his buddy's. He's a loser for sure. She isn't any better either. She's out getting high too. You can just look at her and tell she's on all kinds of stuff.
