Drug defendants convicted, sentenced

• Updated May 19, 2018 at 12:04 AM

Several defendants have been convicted of and sentenced for drug-related felonies in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Matthew K. Hall, 39, of Florida, was sentenced Thursday to a 90-day discretionary jail sentence for attempted corrupting another with drugs. In addition to a $250 fine during his three years of probation, he must reimburse the Norwalk Police Department $80 for the cost of lab testing.

A discretionary sentence means the defendant’s probation officer has the discretion of when to impose part or all of the time without a hearing.

In other recent hearings:

• Alan R. Blodgett, 34, of Toledo, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of aggravated possession of drugs in exchange for the dismissal of one charge of aggravated trafficking in drugs. His sentencing hearing is July 11. Blodgett has been unable to post a $2,500 bond since March 2.

• Shaun M. Lykins, 33, most recently of 23 E. Main St., Apt. B, New London, pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted aggravated trafficking in drugs. His sentencing hearing is July 11. Since Lykins has a local conviction for trafficking in heroin (December 2014), he is eligible for a prison sentence. Lykins remains out on a $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision. 

• Tanisha M. Pomposelli, 25, of Mansfield, was sentenced Wednesday to a 90-day discretionary jail sentence for aggravated possession of carfentanil. She also was fined $250 as part of her three years of probation.

• Chyna White, 19, most recently of 1406 E. U.S. 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of receiving stolen property in exchange for the dismissal of a similar fourth-degree felony. Her sentencing hearing is July 12. The Huron County Sheriff’s Office transported White to the jail May 1 and as of press time, she was being held without bond.

• Ashley N. Wormald, 32, most recently of 173 North St., Apt. 2, Monroeville, was sentenced Wednesday to a 90-day discretionary jail sentence for aggravated trafficking in drugs in a school zone. She was fined $250 as an additional condition of her three years of probation. In early April, Wormald pleaded guilty to the third-degree felony in exchange for prosecutors dismissing a similar charge.
