MOUNT VERNON — On Friday, Common Pleas Court Judge Otho Eyster sentenced three men and three women for various crimes and violations of community control supervision, according to Knox County Prosecutor John Thatcher.
Brian K. Rose, 37, was sentenced to a 15-month prison term for domestic violence. Thatcher said Rose struck his live-in girlfriend in the face and bit her on the finger on Sept. 9, 2009. According to the indictment, Rose was convicted of domestic violence in 2006, making his latest offense a felony. Sgt. Andy Burns, Mount Vernon Police Department, investigated the case.
On June 9, 2009, Trooper Neil Laughlin, Ohio State Highway Patrol, stopped a vehicle on Taylor Road for suspected drunk driving, then arrested the driver for OVI. Thatcher said the passenger in the vehicle, Brandon A. Williams, 32, Mount Vernon, was found in possession of a rock of crack cocaine. Williams was sent to prison for 11 months for possessing cocaine.
Tracy L. Fowler, 44, Mount Vernon, was convicted of deception to obtain dangerous drugs and sent to prison for 11 months. Thatcher said that in 2006-08, Fowler allegedly filled overlapping prescriptions for Alprazolam, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Lorazepam and Clonazepam, written by doctors who did not know Fowler already had prescriptions for these controlled drugs. Sgt. Tom Durbin, Knox County Sheriff’s Office, investigated the case.
Christopher J. Litt, 56, Caledonia, was convicted of theft for taking miscellaneous tools valued at over $500 from an auction on Aug. 22, 2009, without paying for them. Litt was sentenced to a three-year term of community control supervision, including a 120-day jail sentence that starts immediately. Thatcher said Litt will serve an 11-month prison term if he violates any condition of his supervision. Detective Sgt. Roger Brown, KCSO, investigated the case.
Kelly M. Ferenbaugh, 27, Danville, forged another person’s signature on an Ohio BMV Applicant’s Driver License Information form, and used the other person’s personal information on the form on Feb. 6, 2009. Ferenbaugh was convicted of forgery and identity theft and sentenced to a three-year term of community control supervision, including a mandatory drug and alcohol assessment and monitoring.
Thatcher said Ferenbaugh will serve an 11-month prison term if she violates any condition of her supervision. Sgt. Tom Looney, Danville Police Department, investigated the case.
