Columbiana County Common Pleas

Michael L. Goughenour, 34, Cleveland Street, Salem, was sentenced to six years in prison for illegal manufacturing of drugs, illegal possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs and possession of drugs by Columbiana County Common Pleas Court Judge C. Ashley Pike on Friday. Goughenour will be allowed to serve the six years concurrent to a sentence he is currently serving from a Mahoning County court.

On July 1, 2015, Goughenour and two others were manufacturing methamphetamine in a home on U.S. 30. Agents from the county Drug Task Force found a container of liquid in the bedroom, which contained meth. Additionally there were seven one-pot cooks within the home, which was inhabited by Goughenour, Rachel Kreps and Tristan Apinis.

Apinis, 31, Cleveland Street, Salem, is scheduled for sentencing on the related charges on Nov. 17. Kreps, 29, U.S. Route 30, Hanoverton, was sentenced to six years on similar charges last month.

Kevin S. Reid, 30, Seventh Street, Columbiana, pleaded guilty to pandering obscenity involving a minor and pandering in sexually oriented matter involving a minor. Sentencing is set for Jan. 27. He faces up to three years in prison and a $5,000 fine if sentences can be imposed consecutively. On Dec. 31, 2014 Reid was found with forms of media, including videos showing minors participating in sexual activities.

Sandra Boggs, 44, Goshen Road, Salem, was found eligible for intervention in lieu of conviction, pleaded guilty to obstructing justice and placed on a four-year treatment plan. Boggs repeatedly told deputies her son, Michael Boggs, was not in her home, lying to conceal his whereabouts on Dec. 22, 2015.
