The defendant entered a plea of guilty to count two before Brown County Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler on June 15.

On that same date Judge Gusweiler sentenced Nehus to six years in the Ohio Department of Corrections, three years being mandatory, and an operator license suspension of two years with a dismissal of counts one, three and specification to count two. Judge Gusweiler further advised the defendant of a mandatory three years of Post Release Control through the Adult Parole Authority upon his release from prison.

A hearing was held for Violation of Community Control Sanction on June 15, that was previously imposed on Feb. 12, against defendant William Vaughn. The defendant has been convicted of count 1, Trafficking in Drugs within vicinity of Juvenile, a felony of the fourth degree, having a maximum penalty of 18 months in prison and a fine of $5,000 and count 3, Trafficking in Heroin, a felony of the fifth degree, having a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison and a fine of $2,500. Defendant was placed on community control for a period of three years and was notified at the time that a violation could result in a total of 16 months in prison on both counts. The defendant appeared before Judge Gusweiler on June 15. On the same date the defendant waived hearing and admitted to the violations contained in the Probation Department Report.
