Clarksville man back in prison for making meth again

By Gary Huffenberger -

WILMINGTON — A Clarksville area man, 50, received a five-year prison term for making meth in Clinton County.

Timothy Ray Baker had previously served a prison term for the same crime committed in Warren County, according to a court paper.

Baker was found guilty of having manufactured meth in Clinton County on Nov. 28, 2016, and of possessing meth in Clinton County on Aug. 2, 2016. At the time when he possessed meth, he was on parole after being released from state prison.

Time credit for 198 days spent in the county jail on the case was granted toward his latest prison term.

Following release from this prison sentence, Baker will be supervised by the Ohio Adult Parole Authority for three years.

A former Blanchester area woman, originally ordered to complete a period of rehabilitation in lieu of a conviction, has now received a six-month prison sentence. Her original charge was possession of oxycodone.

The woman, Kelly R. Rosenogle, 45, has resided of late in Portsmouth, Ohio, but left the state to go to Michigan without the written permission of a court’s supervision officer.

Previously, an “intervention-in-lieu-of-conviction” plan for her was revoked after she was discharged from a counseling program for poor attendance. She also reportedly failed to comply with directives of the Clinton County Common Pleas Court’s intervention specialist.

Specifically, Rosenogle “failed to appear for scheduled appointments and continuously cancelled appointments, and continuously showed a lack of willingness and deception during Intervention In Lieu of Conviction,” stated a court paper.

The period of rehabilitation originally was for one year, but subsequently was extended by agreement of the parties.

Time credit was granted toward her prison term for 131 days she spent in jail on the case.

At other recent sentencing hearings in the Clinton County Common Pleas Courtroom:

• Ryan Keith Campbell, 24, of Port William, was sentenced to spend 10 months at state prison for possessing drugs, endangering children, and, in a separate case, for failing to appear in court as ordered. He received time credit of 96 days in the county jail on one of the cases against him; and time credit of 60 days in jail on the other case.

• Anthony M. Zornes, 56, of Middletown, was sentenced — after his community controls were revoked — to a term in prison of 12 months. He had been convicted of committing burglary in Clinton County. Time credit was granted for 124 days in the county jail on the case.
