WILMINGTON — A local man received a three-year term of prison after he was found guilty of violating the requirement to report to authorities when he changes his address.

Joshua A. Freymuth, 26, of Wilmington, pled guilty to the charge, and was sentenced immediately. The offense is a third-degree felony crime.

In addition to imprisonment, Freymuth must pay the costs of the case and a public defender fee.

He was granted credit for 71 days he served in jail on the case. The time credit will be applied to his prison term.

In a 2016 case, Freymuth was found guilty of a like offense of violating the duty to register with the authorities.

The specific wording of his original conviction that led to him being required to register with authorities was not immediately available.

Trout, 30, of Xenia, convicted of receiving stolen property and failing to appear in court, was given a six-month suspended jail term, and placed on community control sanctions for a two-year term. He was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,527 to the victim. He also must pay all court costs and a public defender fee.

• Christina M. McKinney, 52, of Sabina, convicted of two counts of aggravated possession of drugs, received a six-month jail term and was placed on community controls for two years. She must successfully complete programming at the residential STAR Community Justice Center in Franklin Furnace, Ohio. McKinney must pay all court costs and a public defender fee.

Clinton County Common Pleas Judge John W. “Tim” Rudduck granted her time credit for 19 days she served in the Clinton County Jail on one of the convictions, and credit for 14 days spent in jail on the other conviction.

Fannin, 41, of Wilmington, convicted of two counts of aggravated possession of drugs and one count of failing to appear in court as directed, received a suspended six-month jail term, and was placed on community controls for two years.
