Several area people have been recently ordered to prison in Wood County Common Pleas Court for their drug-related offenses.
Two of the sentences should eventually lead to more than $21,700 being funded to the Lake Township Police Department Drug Fund.
Ambrian Lewis, 32, of Sandusky, was ordered to serve three years in prison for trafficking in cocaine with a specification in a 2011 case which was just resolved this year. Regarding the specification, Judge Robert Pollex indicated a forfeiture of $11,780 to the township's drug fund.
Toledoan Gregory Baldwin, 37, was ordered to serve two years in prison for possession of cocaine and 18 months for failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer. Judge Reeve Kelsey ordered the sentences to be served consecutive to each other for an aggregate of 42 months. Baldwin will also be required to pay a mandatory $10,000 fine, which will be awarded to the township's drug fund. His driver's license was suspended three years on each count.
Others recently ordered to prison include:
•    Mark Smoot, 33, of Toledo, eight months for aggravated trafficking with specification of forfeiture of $50 seized, and eight months each for two counts of failure to appear as required by recognizance. All sentences to be served consecutively for an aggregate total of two years. (Pollex)
•    Leonard Denson, 23, of Detroit, received 18 months in prison for each of three counts. He was ordered to prison for one count of trafficking in drugs and two counts of attempted trafficking in drugs. The sentences were ordered to be served concurrently for an aggregate total of 18 months. (Pollex)
•    Jasman Glover, 29, of Cincinnati, one year for trafficking in cocaine, and a $5,000 fine which will be awarded to the Perrysburg Township Police Department Drug Fund. (Pollex)
•    Steven Reese, 28, of Findlay, 11 months for aggravated trafficking in marijuana. His driver's license was also suspended for a year. (Judge Alan Mayberry)
•    Holly Curtis, 42, of Perrysburg, and formerly of Bowling Green and Millbury, was found to be in violation of community control sanctions for her convictions of possession of cocaine and permitting drug abuse. She was ordered to serve 11 months in prison on the first charge involving a 2007 case, and 180 days in jail on the second count from a 2008 case. (Kelsey)
•    Joseph Wittenmyer, 26, of North Baltimore, was ordered to serve 11 months in prison for his conviction of drug possession, heroin. (Mayberry)
•    Kejuan Hayes, 25, of Stryker, six months in prison for having weapons under disability and possession of cocaine. (Kelsey)
In other recent court action, a charge of possession of drugs was dismissed against Darnell Massenburg, 41, of Detroit.
Prison sentences in virtually all cases, contain various terms of post release control sanctions, formerly referred to as parole.
