Columbiana County Common Pleas

LISBON — Two East Liverpool men facing large amounts of prison time for drug-related offense pleaded guilty to charges in Common Pleas Court.

Brian Lee Cramer, 35, Michigan Avenue, East Liverpool, pleaded guilty to aggravated trafficking in drugs, two counts of aggravated possession of drugs and possession of cocaine, including a specification for forfeiture of money in a drug case. Two of the charges are first-degree felonies, which he agreed to plead guilty to without the major drug offender specification. If all prison sentences were run consecutively, he faces up to 35 and a half years in prison, a $45,000 fine and a five-year license suspension. Sentencing is set for June 28.

On Oct. 1, 2019, Cramer had more than 100 times the bulk amount of methamphetamines, which were prepared for sale. Two of the other charges involve having methamphetamines and cocaine on March 5, 2020, along with $301 in drug-related proceeds.

Matthew R. Young, 25, Lisbon Street, East Liverpool, pleaded guilty to trafficking in cocaine, a first-degree felony; possession of cocaine, a first-degree felony; trafficking in cocaine, a third-degree felony; aggravated trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony; two counts of aggravated possession of drugs, both a third-degree felony; possession of cocaine, a third-degree felony; possession of drugs, a misdemeanor and two counts of aggravated possession of drugs, both fifth-degree felonies. Sentencing is set for May 21. He faces up to 50 years in prison, a $96,000 fine and a five-year license suspension.

On March 13, 2020, Young had more than 27 grams of cocaine; methamphetamines, which were prepared for sale; hydrocodone; amphetamines; burprenorphine and $1,245 in drug-related proceeds. Prior to that on Feb. 22, 2020, he had more than 10 grams of cocaine prepared for resale and more than the bulk amount of methamphetamines.

Stacey R. Love, 47, state Route 164, Leetonia, has filed an appeal after a County Municipal Court jury found her guilty of OVI first offense and a turn signals violation. Her sentence, which includes a three-day jail sentence and attendance of a three-day counseling program, is on hold pending her appeal.
