Kentucky man sentenced on drug charges

GREENVILLE — Kentucky resident sentenced on drug charges in the Darke County Common Pleas Court. Judge Jonathan P. Hein presided.

Bradley S. Crum, 36, entered a guilty plea to one count of aggravated possession of drugs, a felony of the fifth degree. As part of the plea deal, Crum’s other case involving another aggravated possession of drugs, a felony of the fifth degree was dropped due to the cases being on the same day with the same charge. The only difference was the time stamps.

He could face a maximum of one year incarceration and a $2,500 fine, all of which are not mandatory. State Prosecutor Deborah Quigley made a recommendation regarding sentencing stating the state feels it is best to give Crum credit for the time served, and they don’t think he is a good candidate for community control due to distance and living situations.

“The state would note the defendant has a rather lengthy criminal history. Most of the history deals with drugs,” Quigley said. “He had drug charges when he was in the military, he had drug charges in Kentucky, and he had drug charges here.”

Crum’s defense attorney, Nicole Pohlman, told the court it is Crum’s intent to return to Kentucky instead of staying here in Greenville, and he had already worked out a ride situation. Judge Hien sentenced Crum to 45 days with 45 days credit and placed him on monitored time supervision for 24 months.

Monitored time supervision is not active reporting, and it allows Crum to go to Kentucky without having parole supervision. However, if he is ever ordered to report to Darke County, the he will have to report to Darke County in person. If Crum fails to comply, he can earn up to 12 months and a $2,500 fine will be imposed.

Terry A. Parks, 35, was arrested on an active warrant out of Wood County by Bowling Green Municipal Court. He agreed to be transported to Wood County without a trial, and Parks’s bond was set at $1,000. Arrangements were made for Wood County to transfer him out of the jail.

Daniel L. Campbell, 38, of Greenville entered a not guilty plea via video conference to one count of having a weapon while under disability, a felony of the third degree. If found guilty, Campbell faces three years incarceration and a $10,000 fine, all of which are not mandatory. He was released on his own recognizance bond.
