Guilty of a burglary in Clinton County and taking 400 DVDs among other items, a Dayton-area woman has received an 18-month prison term.
Stephanie E. Cline, 26, of Brookville, was brought to her sentencing hearing this week in Clinton County from state prison where she has been since July 2013 for another offense.
In addition to the DVDs, Cline stole hand tools, an amplifier and a television, according to the indictment against her.
The burglary occurred three years ago in January 2011. She originally was put on a two-year term of community controls in fall 2011. However, she broke her community controls, for one thing by failing to report to her supervision officer due to being in prison, court papers stated.
Credit was granted for 348 days already served in custody. Cline was in the MonDay program for 168 days, according to a court document.
In an unrelated sentencing, 36-year-old Matthew M. Louiso of Lebanon, Ohio, was sent to prison Tuesday for six months for dealing drugs in Clinton County.
Specifically, Louiso was found guilty of trafficking in heroin and the prescription pain-relief medication oxycodone.
In a plea agreement, both prosecution and defense counsel recommended the six-month imprisonment.
Additionally, Louiso’s license to drive was suspended for one year, effective Tuesday.
In a third local felony sentencing, 35-year-old Jacqueline A. McLaughlin of Dayton was placed on community controls Tuesday for a year for possessing methamphetamine in Clinton County.
She also was found guilty of failing to appear at a prior scheduled sentencing hearing in the drug-possession case.
McLaughlin faces a year in prison if she breaks the orders of her community controls.
Her license to drive was suspended for six months. While driving privileges might be granted, her license was already under suspension, stated court papers.
Credit was granted for 29 days in the local jail.
Clinton County Common Pleas Judge John W. “Tim” Rudduck stated McLaughlin must take part in programming that her probation supervisors find necessary, “with special emphasis placed on treatment for substance abuse problems and mental health issues the court believes may exist.”
McLaughlin has a prior felony conviction.
