Man already in prison gets more time

A Mansfield man will be staying in prison a little bit longer than he may have originally planned. Kristopher Amos, 25, appeared in Crawford County Common Pleas Court Monday afternoon for community control violations and an arraignment.

Amos had originally pleaded guilty for failure to register in June 2012 and was placed on probation for one year. Though he is currently serving time for Richland County charges, Amos returned to Crawford County Common Pleas Court to deal with his violations. His violations consisted of failing to report to his supervising officer and failing to advise his supervising officer of his change of address on July 10, 2012.

Amos was also charged with the fourth degree felonious assault of a corrections officer, an incident which occurred on March 4, 2012.

Amos chose to waive counsel and plead guilty to all charges while in Common Pleas Court Monday. Judge Russell Wiseman terminated Amos unsuccessfully from community control and ordered him to serve 12 months in prison for the assault charge. The 12-month sentence will be served consecutively with Amos’s Richland County sentence.

Crawford County Common Pleas Court Judge Russell Wiseman wasn’t taking any kind of excuses Monday afternoon. Charles Baker, 29, was dealing with his community control violations in court when he told Wiseman that the syringes found in his possession, along with a spoon, were there because he was diabetic and had to take insulin.

After an Adult Parole Authority officer listed off Baker’s violations, which included possessing the syringes and spoons as well as as testing positive for cocaine, opiates, and marijuana on June 14, Wiseman set bond at $100,000 and appointed attorney Robert Whitney as Baker’s counsel.

Baker had been granted judicial release on June 6, 2011 after serving time on a third-degree felony burglary charge.

Korinthia Wireman, 21, of Galion, was granted intervention in lieu of conviction in court Monday afternoon. Wireman entered a guilty plea to possessing heroin on April 19, 2013. That guilty plea will be held until Wireman successfully completes her two years on intervention.
