Brunswick Man Sentenced by Judge Kimbler for Complicity to Commit Drug Trafficking

On Monday, April 12, 2010, Judge James L. Kimbler sentenced Mr. Timothy R. Miller, 22, of West 130th Street in Brunswick, Ohio, for Complicity to Commit Drug Trafficking, a fifth degree felony. Mr. Miller's case resulted from an undercover operation conducted in Brunswick by the Medway Drug Enforcement Agency. Prior to his sentencing hearing, Mr. Miller entered a plea of "no contest" and was found guilty by Judge Kimbler on January 19, 2010.

When Mr. Miller first appeared for sentencing on February 25, 2010, the pre-sentence investigation report revealed that Mr. Miller had told the investigator that he was not guilty of the charge. Judge Kimbler then refused to continue with the sentencing hearing. At the hearing on Monday Mr. Miller told the court that he believed that he had committed the offense that was charged.

Judge Kimbler then proceeded to sentence him to a residential community control sanction of 36 days in jail, with credit for 36 days previously served.

Judge Kimbler also sentenced him to non-residential community control sanctions. Those sanctions included three years of intensive supervision by the Medina County Adult Probation Department; 24 hours of community service; getting a drug use assessment and following all after-care treatment recommendations, if any; completing the Crossroads Program and the Berea Children's Home Program; having no contact with his co-defendants; random drug testing and being arrested on a positive finding; and making best efforts to become and remain gainfully employed.

Judge Kimbler also ordered a six month license suspension and ordered Mr. Miller to pay a community control sanction fee. Judge Kimbler also ordered that Mr. Miller go to prison for six months if he violates the terms and conditions of supervision.
