SIDNEY – Two Sidney residents were sentenced to 18 months in prison in Shelby County Common Pleas Court as a result of probation violations.

Judge James F. Stevenson sentenced Philip S. Campbell, 37, of Sidney, to 18 months in prison on a probation violation stemming from a charge of aggravated assault, a fourth degree felony. Campbell was granted credit for four days served in jail.

Additionally, Campbell was sentenced to 180 days on an amended charge of domestic violence, a first degree misdemeanor. He previously was charged with a fourth degree felony count of domestic violence but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge on March 22.

Campbell will serve the sentence for the domestic violence charge concurrent to his probation violation sentence, meaning at the same time. He was granted credit for three days served in jail in the domestic violence case.

After his release from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, Campbell will be required to serve up to three years of post release control. He also was ordered to pay court costs.

In a separate case, Madisen Leach, 23, of Sidney, also was sentenced to 18 months in prison on a probation violation stemming from a charge of aggravated assault, a fourth degree felony. She was granted credit for 242 days served in jail.

After her release from prison, Leach will be required to serve up to three years of post release control. She also was ordered to pay court costs.

In other actions:
