Guilty pleas in Washington County court

From staff reports

The Washington County Common Pleas Court had multiple pleas and a sentencing this Tuesday and Wednesday.

•Freddy Dale Taylor Jr., 47, of 729 Ninth St., Marietta, pleaded guilty to multiple charges stemming from an arrest after a traffic stop on Feb. 5 of this year. During the stop authorities found multiple types of drugs in his vehicle.

On Wednesday, Taylor pleaded guilty to aggravated possession of drugs, a third-degree felony, and possession of heroin and cocaine. Both possession charges are fifth-degree felonies. Taylor faces up to seven years confinement and a $15,000 fine.

Taylor is scheduled to be sentenced for the crimes on Dec. 18.

•Robert Carpenter, 44, of 304 Maple St., Marietta was sentenced on Wednesday to 90 days incarceration and one year probation. Carpenter received the sentence after being convicted of receiving stolen property in August of this year.

•On Wednesday, Kirk Urban, 43, homeless, pleaded guilty to the fifth-degree felony of public indecency. He was also sentenced and received six months in the county jail. The plea and sentencing originally comes from an August arrest on the 1300 block of Glendale Road for an active warrant for public indecency and obstructing official police business. Urban was indicted for the public indecency charge in February for masturbating in a picture window of a home on Cisler Lane in Marietta.

•On Tuesday, Crystal Jeffers, 45, of 753 Lowell Hill Road, Lowell pleaded guilty to the fifth-degree felony of aggravated possession of drugs and the charges of domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor and criminal damaging or endangering, a second-degree misdemeanor.

The guilty plea stems from an arrest on April 22 for the original charges of felonious assault and criminal damaging. On that date she chased her ex-husband Lloyd Jeffers around the front yard of the home in which they share in her truck. She ended the chase wrecking into her ex-husband’s car. After the collision she exited her vehicle and smashed the windshield of his car.

Jeffers will be sentenced on Jan. 4, 2019 and faces up to 21 months incarceration and $4,250 in fines.
