Three people appeared before Judge Steven Beathard for sentencing Monday in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas.
Ashley G. Huffman, 32, of Washington C.H., was sentenced to two years of community control and 10 days in the Fayette County Jail for endangering children.
Huffman was arrested Feb. 3 after her child was found in the Dayton Avenue Flagway store. After being left there for awhile, the child’s father and police were called. Police spoke with the child, who said she was afraid of her mother and that her mother had kicked her out of the house for not cleaning up a mess, reports said. Huffman later told police the child had ran away.
Police arrested Huffman for child endangerment since she had known the child was missing and failed to report the issue to police. She said she did, however, make a stop at the Dayton Avenue Flagway to purchase cigarettes. She was also ordered to pay the costs for prosecution.
Timothy J. May, of Washington C.H., was sentenced to two years of community control and to an assessment for an appropriate drug/alcohol program for aggravated possession of drugs.
May was stopped for speeding by an Ohio State Highway Patrol officer on US Route 35 Jan. 19 for speeding. May reportedly said to the officer, “How you doing bud? I’m not even going to lie to you man. I don’t have a license.”
He consented to a pat-down, at which point the officer found a cellophane bag containing seven Oxycodone pills. May was additionally ordered to a six-month driver’s license suspension and ordered to pay costs of prosecution.
Jason I. Curry, 22, of Greenfield, was sentenced to two years community control and 30 days in the Fayette County Jail for receiving stolen property.
Curry was ordered to complete his current course of treatment with Hillsboro FRS, including any aftercare, and pay costs of prosecution. Curry took several loads of farm machinery, tools, and trailers from a farm in Leesburg and sold the items to Cohen Recycling. The owner of the property was able to positively identify his stolen property at Cohen Recycling. Curry was ordered to pay $1,592.90 in restitution to the victim.
