LISBON - A Wellsville man pleaded guilty to OVI during action in Columbiana County Pleas Court.
Jimmy Kellogg, 72, of Main Street, is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 18 after pleading guilty as charged to OVI, while a secondary OVI offense was dismissed.
Kellogg was cited for drunk driving following a traffic stop on Teegarden Road in September 2011. The charge was a felony because this was his sixth such offense in the past 20 years.
In other court action, Judge C. Ashley Pike dismissed a probation violation motion filed against a West Virginia woman who was on probation for drug possession.
Valerie A. Gilmer, 36, of Newell, was sentenced in February to five years probation/treatment after pleading guilty to the charge. Charges were filed after she was found with crack pipe containing cocaine following a traffic stop in East Liverpool 2012.
According to court records, Gilmer tested positive for benodiazepines, marijuana and cocaine when tested by the probation department a month after being sentenced. At her probation revocation hearing, defense attorney James Hartford noted his client had a prescription for benzodiazepines and denied having either marijuana or cocaine in her system at that time.
Part way during the testimony of a probation officer, Hartford made a motion to dismiss the alleged violation due to insufficient evidence, and Pike granted his request. The judge then ordered Gilmer to be tested immediately.
