Men plead guilty to drug charges

GREENVILLE – Three Greenville men pleaded guilty to drug charges in Darke County Common Pleas Court Monday, and another was sentenced for heroin possession.

Robert Redditt Jr., 50, of Greenville, had entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of heroin, a fifth-degree felony. He was sentence Monday to community control sanctions with credit for time served in jail. He is subject to 10 months in jail if he fails to comply with the terms of his community control. His driver’s license also was suspended for six months.

Jonathan Smith, 28, entered a guilty plea to a charge of possession of heroin, a fifth-degree felony, which occurred in 2014. He also pleaded guilty to violation of the ILC (intervention in lieu of conviction) program, a fifth-degree felony, from a case in 2012.

The ILC program allows criminal offenders, where drug or alcohol use has been a factor in commission of the crime, the opportunity to complete treatment and counseling to address their drug and alcohol problems instead of incarceration. The ILC program also can be used if the offender has a mental illness or intellectual disability. Violation of the program terms, however, can lead to jail time.

Smith faces a maximum of 12 months in jail and $2,500 in fines on each of the two charges. He also will receive a mandatory license suspension of six months to five years.

Todd Kuhn, 48, of Greenville, entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of heroin, a fifth-degree felony. Four other counts against him were dismissed. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail and $2,500 in fines, in addition to a mandatory driver’s license suspension of six months to five years.

Dwayne Morgan, of Greenville, entered a guilty plea to a fourth-degree felony charge of theft of drugs. He faces a maximum 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
