SIDNEY — The Shelby County Common Pleas Court recently handed down several sentences for drug possession, failure to comply with a police officer, and domestic violence.

Davon K. Hill, 22, who is in the Shelby County Jail, was sentenced to five years of community control with 116 days of jail credit and must successfully complete treatment at WORTH or another CBCF and a recovery home program. He must also obtain a GED. This was because of attempted failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer and the possession of drugs, both fourth-degree felonies. Hill was initially indicted on the same charges and possessing criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony, for traveling over 100 mph, running a red light, passing vehicles on the righthand side, and nearly striking a semi while running through an intersection to flee police and possessing heroin, a bag and a scale. The criminal tools charge was dismissed.

Leah Victoria Righter, 28, of Port Jefferson, was sentenced to 120 days in the Shelby County Jail with two days of jail credit for domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor. Righter was initially indicted on endangering children, a fourth-degree felony, for abusing a 9-year-old child.

Cody Cook, 28, of Houston, was sentenced to five years of community control with one day of jail credit and he must successfully complete treatment at WORTH or another CBCF for the attempted possession of drugs, a first-degree misdemeanor, and the possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. Cook was initially indicted on the same charges and possessing criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony, for having cocaine and methamphetamine and containers to store them in, but the criminal tools charge was dismissed.

Gage Michael Paul Maxon, 28, of Piqua, was sentenced to five years of community control with zero days of jail credit and he must successfully complete treatment at WORTH or another CBCF and the STAR House and obtain a GED. This was because of the aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. Maxon was initially indicted on the same charge and possessing criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony, for having methamphetamine and a bag to store it in, but the criminal tools charge was dismissed.
