A Greenfield man who was sentenced to prison earlier this year received an additional six months on a different case this week in the Highland County Common Pleas Court.

According to court records, Devin Campbell, 22, Greenfield, entered a plea of guilty on Wednesday to fifth-degree felony aggravated possession of drugs. He was sentenced to six months in prison, which will run consecutively to his time on a prior case.

Records showed that Campbell was placed on community control in February on two counts of fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school. That community control was later revoked in March and a sentence was imposed.

The Times-Gazette previously reported that Campbell admitted to violations at that time, which included consuming illicit drugs and not complying with orders of the court to attend counseling while he awaited a bed at the STAR residential treatment facility. He was sentenced to 24 months in prison on those charges, as previously reported.

In other cases, judicial release was granted to Casey Saunders, 34, Greenfield. He was previously sentenced in February to prison on fourth-degree felony operating a motor vehicle while under the influence.

In February, Saunders was sentenced to a mandatory 60 days in jail, which was to run consecutively to an additional 16 months of prison. While that was his first felony conviction, it was Saunders’ sixth OVI conviction. According to the indictment, Saunders’ previous OVI convictions were in 2003, 2006, 2007, and two in 2011.

Saunders was ordered to pay a $1,350 fine, and his driver’s license was suspended for five years. According to the plea agreement, the state agreed not to oppose judicial release to treatment after six months.

Saunders will be released and placed on community control for three years. He must successfully complete a recommended treatment program.
