Woman order to keep drug treatment

STEUBENVILLE - Molly L. Fry, 30, of Burgettstown was placed on two years of probation on Monday by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. after Fry pleaded guilty to possession of heroin.

Fry was arrested May 20 after a traffic stop by City Police, and she was found to be in possession of 79 unit doses of heroin.

Fry, who has been in drug treatment for more than a month, was ordered to continue her treatment. She faces three years in prison if she violates probation.

Man sentenced for probation violation

STEUBENVILLE - Myron D. Gibson, 29, of Hopedale, was sentenced by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge David Henderson on Monday to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center for a probation violation, which resulted in Gibson being kicked out of the EOCC.

Gibson on Nov. 29 pleaded guilty to an amended indictment charging attempted robbery. He then was sentenced to three months in EOCC. A week later, the county prosecutor's office filed a motion for Gibson's probation to be revoked based on Gibson making arrangements to have drugs brought into the EOCC.

Gibson was attempting to take items from Wal-Mart on June 28 when he was stopped by loss prevention officers at the store. He fought with the Wal-Mart employees and attempted to gouge their eyes during the struggle.

Gibson will be on probation for one year after his release from the EOCC. He faces up to 18 months in prison if he violates probation.
