BUCYRUS — A Galion woman was sentenced to jail time in Crawford County Common Pleas Court this week after admitting to violating the terms of her probation.

Shara A. Skaggs, 35, admits to using heroin and missing several drug tests through the drug treatment program at Maryhaven.

Judge Sean Leuthold sentenced her to 30 days in the Crawford County Justice Center before she can return to the court’s ISAT (Intensive Supervision and Treatment) program.

Skaggs was placed in the program and on probation after she pleaded guilty to one count of possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, in early 2016.

A Bucyrus man was sentenced to three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felonious assault, a second-degree felony.

Derek J. Riels, 29, admits to pulling a knife during a fight involving alcohol. In addition to his prison sentence, Leuthold ordered Riels to pay a $5,000 fine.

A Crestline woman is also heading to prison.

Lisa A. Grochowalski, 39, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, and was sentenced to six months in prison. Leuthold also ordered her to pay a $1,250 fine.

Grochowalski must first complete a 30-day sentence at the Crawford County Justice Center on a contempt of court conviction before heading to the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville.

A Galion man violated the terms of his diversion and will now have a felony conviction on his record.

Zachary H. Strickland, 22, was placed on the program in July of 2013 for a fourth-degree felony charge of receiving stolen property. He admitted that he has filed to report to his probation officer for monthly visits and has not paid the court-ordered restitution to the victim in his case in the amount of $5,660.

Strickland pleaded guilty to the original charge and Leuthold placed him on community control. Strickland must also pay the restitution and court costs.
