A Bainbridge man was sentenced to 70 days in jail after being found guilty of a probation violation in the Hillsboro Municipal Court on Monday.

Court records showed that Albert Cox Jr., 43, pled guilty to second-degree misdemeanor attempting to purchase an illegal amount of pseudoephedrine in June.

Half of a 90-day jail sentence was suspended at that time. Cox was ordered to stay away from CVS and to obtain counseling. He was placed on reporting probation.

Records added that Cox was furloughed from jail the following week and placed on electronic monitoring house arrest.

On Monday, he was found guilty of a probation violation. According to the municipal court, Cox had failed a drug screen.

Seventy days were imposed, records showed. That time began when Cox was taken into custody on Friday.

Also found guilty of a probation violation was Heather Miles, 35, Hillsboro. She appeared on a bench warrant that was issued in September for failure to comply with the probation department, records showed.

Miles previously pled guilty to first-degree misdemeanor theft in July. All but five days of a 90-day jail sentence were suspended. She could be furloughed with a negative drug screen.

Miles was also placed on reporting probation and ordered to stay away from Walmart and to perform 40 hours of community service.

A 42-day jail sentence was imposed Monday, records showed. A review hearing is set for March.

In other cases, jail sentences were scheduled for two defendants appearing for review hearings.

Sarah Gibson, 41, Hillsboro, pled no contest and was found guilty of theft in July, according to records. A 90-day jail sentence was suspended, as was $400 of a $500 fine.

She was ordered to have no contact with the reportedly involved store, to perform 100 hours of community service, and to pay $248 in restitution. Gibson was also placed on reporting probation.

On Monday, she was found guilty of a probation violation. A 30-day jail sentence will be reviewed next month, records added.

Brian Midkiff, 36, West Union, was also found guilty of a violation. A 15-day jail sentence is set to be reviewed in February.

He was found guilty of fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct in July after entering an agreement. The Times-Gazette previously reported that Midkiff had faced a charge of first-degree misdemeanor contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a minor.

A 30-day jail sentence and a $250 fine were both previously suspended on the condition that Midkiff complete a case plan through children services. He was also ordered to perform 80 hours of community service and to complete FRS counseling.

Finally, Alixsae Behlke, 25, Greenfield, also appeared on a probation violation. The Times-Gazette previously reported that she was placed on a $5,000 bond last month when she appeared on a bench warrant that was issued for failure to comply with the probation department.

She was previously convicted in August of fourth-degree misdemeanor unauthorized use of property, according to records. At that time, all but three days of a 30-day jail sentence were suspended. A $250 fine was also suspended.

Records added that Behlke was ordered to have no contact with Walmart, to perform 20 hours of community service, to pay restitution, and to complete a theft class.

On Monday, Behlke was found guilty of a probation violation. She was given credit for 27 days in jail. According to records, “this completes (her) probation.”

As previously reported, Behlke also faces felony charges. She entered an agreement last week in Highland County Common Pleas Court and pled guilty to fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school, fifth-degree felony heroin possession, and fifth-degree felony trafficking in heroin. Behlke is scheduled to be sentenced in December.
