WILMINGTON — Three people are charged with felony domestic violence and 13 individuals charged with possessing drugs among 24 defendants recently indicted by a Clinton County Grand Jury.

Christopher T. Anspach, 44 of Wilmington, is indicted on a third-degree felony charge (F3) of domestic violence. He is alleged to have knowingly caused or attempted to cause physical harm to a family or household member Aug. 31.

Further, the indictment papers state Anspach has prior domestic violence convictions in two cases that occurred in Warren County.

On Oct. 15 the defendant pleaded not guilty before a Clinton County magistrate.

Jeremy C. Carr, 29 of Blanchester, was indicted on two counts of domestic violence (an F4 and an F3, which was later amended to F4), and a charge of disrupting public services (F4).

On Oct. 20 Carr pleaded guilty to the two F4 domestic violence charges, with the disrupting public services charge dismissed. He is sentenced to be scheduled on Nov. 22.

Both counts of domestic violence stem from Aug. 15, with two separate victims. He had a prior conviction for domestic violence.

Following the Oct. 20 plea and conviction, the defendant was released from custody over objection of the prosecutor in the case. His release came with added conditions, including reporting the next day to the bond diversion program and he must comply with weekly in-person reporting requirements and submit to random drug tests.

Carr will be evaluated for possible admission into the STAR program. The STAR Community Justice Center at Franklin Furnace, Ohio is a Community-Based Correctional Facility (CBCF), one of 19 such facilities in Ohio.

A CBCF is an alternative to prison with the primary purpose of rehabilitation of felony offenders.

Ryan K. Campbell, 28, of Wilmington, is indicted on a charge of domestic violence (F4). The charge stems from an alleged Aug. 28 incident.

On Oct. 15 he pleaded not guilty. Campbell has a prior conviction for domestic violence.

Curtis A. Moore Jr., 41, whose address is listed as at-large, is indicted on a charge of failing to notify the sheriff of an address change (F4). According to the indictment document, the alleged failure to notify occurred between March 18, 2021 through July 23.
