SIDNEY – A city man currently in state prison has received a second sentence involving illegal drug trafficking of cocaine. Another Sidney man was also incarcerated on drug-related charges.
The cases were among those heard recently in Shelby County Common Pleas Court.
In a Hamilton County case, Carlos Wilson, 44, Pickaway Correctional Institution, was sentenced to 11 months with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) on Sept. 25 for trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony.
Locally on Monday, May 20, Wilson was ordered to serve a second 11-month sentence for trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony, by Judge James Stevenson. The term will be served consecutively or after the first sentence has been fulfilled.
In a negotiated settlement, Wilson pleaded guilty to a charge of trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony. He was arrested Sept. 5 with cocaine.
Online court records indicate Stevenson factored in Wilson’s criminal history and that he was also arrested while awaiting trial in the Hamilton County case.
Christopher M. Wade, 41, 607 N. Miami Ave., was sentenced to 11 months with the ODRC on a charge of aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. In a pretrial agreement, prosecutors agreed to recommend a six-month prison sentence for Wade.
Wade and Denise Bradley, 42, 5092 Dawson Road, Houston, were arrested on Dec. 28 following a drug raid at Wade’s residence. Both were found in possession of Methamphetamine.
According to authorities, due to the arrest history of the known occupants, the warrant execution was deemed an “elevated risk,” resulting in entry gained by tactical officers from the Sidney and Piqua Police departments.
Previously, Bradley was sentenced to 11 months at the ODRC Marysville Reformatory for Women on a charge of aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony.
Dale E. Aselage, 55, 178 S. Frankfort St., Minster, was sentenced to 60 days in the Shelby County Jail on two counts of assault, both first-degree misdemeanors. He was accused of engaging in sexual activity for two years with a mentally impaired person.
He was also placed on five years of probation, ordered to successfully undergo treatment through a psychological sexual evaluation, was fined $200 on each count and was assessed court costs.
