Jimmy Kellogg, 72, of Main Street, is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 18 after pleading guilty as charged to OVI, while a secondary OVI offense was dismissed.

In other court action, Judge C. Ashley Pike dismissed a probation violation motion filed against a West Virginia woman who was on probation for drug possession.

Valerie A. Gilmer, 36, of Newell, was sentenced in February to five years probation/treatment after pleading guilty to the charge. Charges were filed after she was found with crack pipe containing cocaine following a traffic stop in East Liverpool 2012.

According to court records, Gilmer tested positive for benodiazepines, marijuana and cocaine when tested by the probation department a month after being sentenced. At her probation revocation hearing, defense attorney James Hartford noted his client had a prescription for benzodiazepines and denied having either marijuana or cocaine in her system at that time.

Part way during the testimony of a probation officer, Hartford made a motion to dismiss the alleged violation due to insufficient evidence, and Pike granted his request. The judge then ordered Gilmer to be tested immediately.
