Two people were sentenced in Darke County Common Pleas Court on Thursday. Judge Jonathan P. Hein presided.
Cody D. M. Crawford, 27, of Greenville, was sentenced to community control sanctions for up to 60 months on one count of failure to comply with the order of a police officer, a third-degree felony. Crawford previously pleaded guilty to the sole count. If he fails to comply with the orders of his probation, he faces a maximum of 18 months incarceration with 11 days credit.
Carissima T. Rapier, 51, of Greenville, was sentenced to 12 months incarceration, on one count of possession of drugs, a third-degree felony. Rapier previously pleaded guilty to the sole count. If she serves the full term, she’s subject to a maximum three years post-release supervision. Judge Hein advised he was open to an early judicial release.
A few members of the community attended her hearing and spoke on her behalf. Bridget Weaver, who works with Rapier at the Brianna’s Hope Community, told the court that not only does she attend meetings regularly, but she also supports other members of the community whenever it’s needed.
Judge Hein encouraged Rapier to continue treatment while in prison, to not only better her health but also set an example for her peers at Brianna’s Hope.
“If you come out with a better resolve, you give them hope,” he said.
