Woodville woman sentenced for making threatening calls


A Woodville woman who made threatening phone calls to a woman at a Perrysburg business has been sentenced.

Lisa Wicker, 54, appeared Monday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.

She pleaded guilty in January to the amended charge of attempted menacing by stalking. Charges of aggravated menacing and telecommunication were dismissed.

On Aug. 17, police responded to a business in the 12000 block of Eckel Road in Perrysburg on a report of numerous phone calls where an employee was threatened with death.

Police subpoenaed the telephone service provider and the number used to call the business was owned by Wicker.

Defense attorney Andrew Schuman said his client was a grandmother to seven and was active in their lives. Wicker is remorseful for what she’s done and has said it won’t happen again, Schuman said.

“I think she will do fairly well on probation,” he said.

Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Lara Rump said the victim was not present but had submitted a statement. She asked the judge to take that into consideration.

Wicker said she understood what she did was wrong and immature, and that if someone had done it to her, she would be upset.

Mack said while Wicker had a history of criminal convictions, her last offense was in 1994 when she was charged with making hang-up calls.

“It’s just disturbing. You made threats on a woman’s life,” Mack said.

The victim asked for police protection because she feared for her life, and the lives of her co-workers and family “all because you thought something was going on between your significant other and her,” Mack said.

She sentenced Wicker to 20 days in jail, which will start Monday, followed by 45 days on home monitoring with privileges to leave for work and meet with the probation officer.

Wicker will then have to serve two years on community control and have no contact with the victim.
