Two appear in common pleas court

GREENVILLE— Two people appeared in Darke County Common Pleas Court on Thursday afternoon. Judge Jonathan P. Hein presided.

Alex J. Neargarder, 25, of Greenville, offered a guilty plea to one count of  possession of fentanyl, a fifth-degree felony. Neargarder submitted a memorandum requesting that he participate in an intervention program in lieu of a conviction. The court will hold the offered guilty plea and upon completion of the intervention program, it will be dismissed. If he’s unable to complete the program, the guilty plea will stand, and he will face up to 12 months in prison and a $2,500 fine, neither of which are mandatory.

Matthew J. Hall, 35, of Greenville, was sentenced to 35 days in jail with 35 days credit and community supervision for up to 60 months on one count of possession of methamphetamines, a fifth-degree felony. Hall previously pleaded guilty to the sole count.
