GREENVILLE – Rachael D. Guillerman of Arcanum was charged with pandering obscenity involving a minor, a second-degree felony, in Darke County Common Pleas Court on Friday.
The charge stems from an incident in January where Guillerman allegedly transmitted a nude photo of a child via cell phone. If convicted the defendant would face mandatory sex offender registry. Guillerman pleaded not guilty and was released on her own recognizance. Her next appearance will be July 31.
Common Pleas Judge Jonathan P. Hein offered stern advice to several other defendants during the proceedings.
Dakota A. Long, 20, of Greenville was charged with domestic violence, a fifth-degree felony carrying up to 12 months incarceration and a $2,500 fine. During a previous court appearance Long had been ordered to attend a program at Darke County Recovery and Wellness, but had not made an appointment as of yet, citing insurance issues. Long also recently tested positive for cocaine and THC.
“Time to step it up and get things done a little faster,” Hein advised Long, who also had yet to meet with an attorney regarding the charges pending against him. “C-minus work is not going to pass.”
Long’s next court appearance will be July 31.
Scott Reynolds, 46, of Union City, Ohio was charged with forgery, a fifth-degree felony. Reynolds was ordered to submit to a blood test after arriving for court visibly intoxicated. Reynolds admitted to having consumed alcohol the previous day, a violation of the terms of his previous release on his own recognizance. Reynolds claimed he had struggled with alcohol since he first began drinking daily at the age of 23.
“If you decide you wanna vote with your feet, I’ll consider that contempt,” Judge Hein told Reynolds, informing the defendant he would face stiff penalties if he attempted to flee the courthouse before submitting to the ordered test.
Reynolds returned to court several minutes later, at which time he was ordered incarcerated pending another court appearance early next week.
Evan Weaver, 19, pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon, which was amended to a first-degree misdemeanor in consultation with Weaver’s attorney and the prosecutor, as well as operating a motor vehicle while under the influence. Weaver was found in possession of a handgun after being pulled over in May of this year. Weaver claimed to have used the gun to scare some dogs away from his family’s property, and to have then placed the gun in his vehicle and left it there without thinking.
In reference to the OVI charge, Judge Hein cautioned Weaver to be mindful of the previous defendant’s example, citing how easily an “innocent” flirtation with alcohol while young can mature into a lifelong struggle with addiction.
Finally, Montana Beanblossom, 22, of Union City, was charged with aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. Beanblossom arrived 45 minutes late for her arraignment hearing, and though she had previously been released on her own recognizance, bond was set at $100,000 after it was revealed the defendant had tested positive for methamphetamine four times in as many weeks, a violation of the terms of her OR bond. Her next appearance will be August 18.
