A Greenfield man was sentenced on Monday to nine years in prison on multiple drug trafficking charges.

Jeffrey L. Coleman, 49, received 12 months prison time on each of nine charges. The sentences were ordered to run consecutively for a total of 108 months, or nine years.

Coleman was indicted in December on a total of 29 charges, plus a forfeiture specification. Earlier in March he pled guilty to four fourth-degree felony counts of trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school, two fourth-degree felony counts of trafficking in cocaine in the vicinity of a school, two fourth-degree felony counts of heroin trafficking, and one fifth-degree felony count of heroin trafficking.

According to the plea agreement filed on March 18, the state dismissed the remaining counts. Coleman is also to forfeit a Dodge Dakota, Chevrolet Impala and a Chevrolet Camero, and is to pay more than $2,000 in restitution.

In other hearings, Jon E. Captain, 35, Hillsboro, admitted to violating his community control. On Monday he was allowed to continue on the community control and was ordered to successfully complete treatment at the STAR residential treatment facility.

Captain was initially placed on community control about a year ago after pleading guilty to fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school. At that time he was also ordered to complete a local treatment program.

According to the notification of supervision violations filed last week, failing to successfully complete that treatment was one of Captain’s alleged violations, along with multiple times of failing to report, and making his whereabouts unknown.

Melissa K. Harris, 25, Xenia, will be sentenced in May after admitting to violating her community control by consuming heroin.

Harris was first sentenced in this case in June of 2014 to intervention in lieu of conviction after entering a plea of guilty to fifth-degree felony heroin possession. Courts records show that was revoked about a year later and she was placed on community control and ordered to complete treatment.
