Man sentenced on meth charge

From staff reports

A Cutler man was sentenced to two years of community control Friday morning for a fourth-degree felony attempted possession of drugs charge.

Christopher Mayle, 40, of 11722 State Route 555, Cutler, was arrested on Feb. 21, 2019, near Ohio 550.

“He had possession of methamphetamine of around 3.44 grams, which is on the edge of bulk,” said Washington County Assistant Prosecutor Amy Bean. “Bulk is 3 grams.”

Mayle was indicted on Sept. 4 on one count of tampering with evidence and one count of aggravated possession of drugs, both third-degree felonies.

He pleaded guilty to the attempted possession of drugs on Jan. 8 in front of Washington County Common Pleas Judge Randall Burnworth.

Bean said along with the two years of community control, Mayle was ordered to complete the rehabilitation program at the STAR Community Justice Center in Franklin Furnace.
