Jury Finds Wadsworth Woman Guilty of Drug Possession

A jury returned a guilty verdict late Wednesday afternoon in Judge Kimbler's courtroom in a drug possession case. The defendant, Toni Amodio, 29, of Main Street in Wadsworth, Ohio, will be sentenced on March 17, 2011 following a pre-sentence investigation. Ms. Amodio will remain out of bond pending her sentencing. Besides ordering a pre-sentence investigation, Judge Kimbler added the condition that she provide weekly drug screens starting the week of January 31, 2011.

The jury trial started on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. The State called four witnesses and Ms. Amodio called one witness. She also testified in her own defense. The drug possession case arose out of the execution of a search warrant on July 22, 2010 by agents of the Med-Way Drug Task Force. This is Ms. Amodio's second conviction for a drug offense. She was earlier found guilty of Trafficking in Heroin in the Summit County Common Pleas Court.
