Several people are now serving time on probation after being sentenced this week in Crawford County Common Pleas Court.

Helenia Javens, 32, Delaware, was sentenced to 100 days in the county jail and five years of community control after failing to meet the requirements of a diversion program she was placed on in October after pleading guilty to theft of drugs, a fourth-degree felony.

Javens admitted to violating her intervention program after failing to report to her office visits since Jan. 14. If she violates the terms of her community control, Javens could be sentenced to prison for up to 18 months.

Caitlynne M. Lambright, 27, Crestline, was sentenced to five years of community control and fined $1,000 after she pleaded guilty to one count of receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony.

Lambright was charged with the new receiving stolen property charge after she served time in prison for 2015 conviction for the same type of charge.

Lambright is also facing charges in Richland County.

Mikel Clair, 43, Crestline, pleaded guilty to one count of insurance fraud, a fifth-degree felony, and was placed on the diversion program for two years. His case could be dismissed if he successfully completes the requirements of the diversion program.

Paul E. Wise III, 38, Oregon, was sentenced to five years of community control after he pleaded guilty to carrying concealed weapons, a fifth-degree felony. He must also surrender a Ruger firearm.

Joseph T. Lewis, 31, Bucyrus, was also sentenced to five years of community control through the county’s probation department for high-risk offenders after he pleaded guilty to theft and drug charges. He must also pay restitution in the amount of $35 to FC Bank, enter a drug and alcohol treatment program and pay a $1,250 fine.
