Convicted sex offender given jail time

A Milan woman convicted of two sex offenses was sentenced Wednesday to six months in the Huron County Jail.

Kristina M. Jordan, 24, most recently of 4106 E. Ohio 113, received her sentence for two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway ordered her to serve 90 days in jail immediately and gave her an additional 90 days as a discretionary sentence. That means her probation officer has the right to impose part or all of the time without a hearing during Jordan’s three years of probation.

Jordan, who was fined $250, is required to register as a Tier II sex offender in person every 180 days for 25 years.

During a late June plea hearing, she pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in exchange for prosecutors dismissing a third charge. Jordan was living in Plymouth when the Huron County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case, according to Norwalk Municipal Court records. While the case was pending, she was prohibited from having any contact with any non-family member younger than 18 and anybody at a U.S. 224, Plymouth, residence.

In other hearings this week: 

• Johnie L. Hicks, 26, most recently of 509 W. Sandusky St., Willard, pleaded guilty Monday to possession of heroin. His sentencing hearing is Oct. 10. Hicks has been in custody since May 24.

• Jeffrey A. Signs, 46, of Castalia, pleaded guilty Monday to possession of buprenorphine. His sentencing hearing is Oct. 4. Signs is eligible for a prison term due to local felony convictions for possession of drugs in 2004 and trafficking in drugs in 2006. In this case, Signs earlier posted a $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision.

• Brett T. Ziemke, 29, most recently of 5780 Ohio 18, Wakeman, pleaded guilty Monday to one count each of theft and aggravated trafficking in drugs. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one charge of forgery and two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs. Ziemke, who has posted a $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision, will be sentenced Oct. 4.
