Ohio man gets four-year sentence

Aug. 01, 2013 @ 12:34 AM

IRONTON -- The former operator of the Proctorville Flea Market was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison. The man also was fined $10,000, ordered to forfeit another $27,000 plus two vehicles and other items, including several weapons, said Prosecutor Brigham M. Anderson.

Jeffrey A. Jones, 50, of Township Road 1280, was sentenced in the case by Lawrence County Common Pleas Judge D. Scott Bowling. He earlier pleaded guilty to four counts of receiving stolen property.

Jones received the maximum sentence in the case. He was indicted last year on nine counts of receiving stolen property and one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity before agreeing to plead guilty to the four felony charges.

In an unrelated case, Christopher Cremeans, 33, of Perry Hollow Road, South Point, was sentenced by Bowling to two years in prison. Cremeans earlier pleaded guilty to burglary.

In another case, Amanda Osborne, 24, of Township Road 276N, South Point, pleaded innocent to charges of corrupting another with drugs, tampering with evidence and misdemeanor counts of possession of drugs and possession of drug abuse instruments.

Judge Charles "Chuck" Cooper set bond in the case at $40,000 and set a pretrial hearing in the case for Aug. 7.
