Three people were sentenced in Highland County Common Pleas Court to prison on Thursday for violating their community control.

Victoria Ann Hartley, 22, Hillsboro, was sentenced in two cases, each charging one count of fifth-degree felony heroin possession.

She was initially sentenced a year ago on both cases to community control and treatment. Court records show that a month after that sentencing she was found to have violated her supervision and was ordered to complete the STAR residential treatment program. Last month she admitted to violating her community control again.

On Thursday she was sentenced to nine months on each of the counts, which were ordered to run consecutively for a total of a year and a half behind bars.

Kenneth D. Mullis, 28, Hillsboro, was sentenced to 18 months in prison on third-degree felony illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs. He previously pled guilty to the charge and in October 2014 was sentenced to community control and treatment.

Last month he admitted to community control violations, which according to a notification filed with the court in March included his failing to report, convictions in Hillsboro Municipal Court, and failing to report a change of residence to his probation officer.

Danny E. Wilson, 37, Sabina, admitted to violating his supervision and was sentenced to 11 months in prison.

The violations included making his whereabouts unknown, failing to make payments, not reporting to probation, and failing to submit to a drug test.

Wilson was convicted of fifth-degree felony nonsupport in May 2013. A year ago he was ordered to complete a residential treatment program after he was found to have violated his supervision.

In other hearings, Rachelle Marie Huff, 37, Peebles, was sentenced to a total of 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to fourth-degree felony aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine and fifth-degree felony heroin trafficking.

The sentences are to be served consecutively to a three-year Adams County sentence Huff is currently serving on an illegal assembly charge.

Lindsai J. Camp, 29, Hillsboro, pled guilty on Thursday to fifth-degree felony aggravated possession of drugs and was sentenced to community control and ordered to successfully complete a residential treatment program. Currently in jail, Camp is to remain incarcerated until going to treatment.

Two defendants admitting to community control violations had their community control supervision extended.

After waiving her right to be represented by an attorney, Danette Daugherty, 39, Wellston, admitted to failing to pay on her restitution. Her community control was extended to five years. Daugherty was sentenced to three years community control in May 2013 on a theft charge.

Keenan Willett, 21, Greenfield, also saw his community control extended to five years after admitting to not paying his court costs and restitution. Willett also waived his right to be represented by an attorney. Three years ago he pled guilty to vandalism and breaking and entering, both fifth-degree felonies, and was sentenced to community control.

Both Daugherty and Willett were ordered to seek employment and to show the court proof of such.
