A Crestline man accused of making threats to Galion City Schools pleaded guilty to one count of inducing panic in Crawford County Common Pleas Court.

Dennis Heefner, 18, to the fifth-degree felony charge after admitting to causing panic at Galion Schools by posting “bout to shoot up Galion school,” on Facebook on March 3.

Judge Sean Leuthold ordered a pre-sentence investigation and continued Heefner’s bond. Heefner’s propsed sentence would include five years of community control and restitution of $308.95 to the Galion Police Department. Since Heefner is charged with a low-level felony and has no previous felony record, he is not prison eligible.

Drug-related infractions while on probation has sent two local men to prison.

Travis E. Poland, 32, Galion, had been placed on probation on three drug-related cases in February of 2015. He admitted to using Vicodin and testing positive for opiates on March 21, violating the terms of his community control.

Judge Sean Leuthold sentenced Poland to nine months in prison in each of the three cases, to be served consecutively for a total of 27 months in prison.

Quentin R. Jenkins, 20, Mansfield, also admitted to violating the terms of his community control.

Jenkins admitted to testing positive for THC while on probation from a 2015 case in which he was in possession of a firearm (a sawed-off shotgun), violating a dangerous ordinance. He was also charged with destruction of property by pushing over a motorcycle and damaging it but that charge was dismissed.

Leuthold sentenced Jenkins to seven months in prison.
