Sex offender sentenced to prison

Seven defendants were sentenced and three pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor earlier this week.

Alex Cramer (pictured), 22, of Hilliard, was sentenced to three years in prison for gross sexual imposition. He will also serve five years post release control. Cramer was classified as a Tier II sex offender and must report his address with the sheriff for twenty-five years.

In May, Cramer was indicted on two counts of gross sexual imposition (F3).

Lionel Triplett, 37, of Lancaster, was sentenced to two years in prison for theft from the elderly.

DeWayne Brown, 28, was sentenced to eleven months in prison for trafficking in drugs.

Bradley Rogan, 25, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to eight months in prison for trafficking in drugs.

Ryan Fissel, 33, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to the West Central Community Based Correctional Facility, five years community control, the probation incentive program, and ordered to pay court costs and attorney fees for trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs.

Erin Ramey (pictured), 27, of Middleburg, was sentenced to the family treatment court, five years intensive community control, the probation incentive program, and ordered to pay court costs and attorney fees for grand theft and safecracking.

In May, Ramey was indicted on single counts of aggravated robbery (F1), robbery (F2), grand theft (F3), and safecracking (F4).

On April 2nd, Ramey was arrested after she allegedly threatened her mother with a handgun during a family dispute at their home.

Initially, Erin wanted to use her mother's vehicle.

The argument escalated when Marla Ramey, 57, of 10411 Water Street, Middleburg, denied her daughter's request.

Erin Ramey then pointed a 22 caliber Derringer in her mother's face.

After taking the unloaded gun away from her daughter, Marla contacted the Logan County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies report that Marla owns the gun, which was locked in a box with jewelry.

Erin found the key and removed the gun and some jewelry.

She left before the sheriff's office responded.

Deputies found Erin just east of Middleburg at the cemetery. She was charged with theft of a firearm and transported to the Logan County Jail.

Children under the age of 13 were home during the incident.

No one was injured.

Jeannie Magill, 28, of Lakeview, was sentenced to three years community control and ordered to pay a $250 fine and court costs for domestic violence.

George Taylor, 42, of Ridgeway, pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular assault.

Gregory Gorham, 61, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to trafficking in drugs.

Randall Bolen (pictured), 30, of Urbana, pleaded guilty to stalking and eluding a police officer.

In June, Bolen was indicted for felonious assault (F2), failure to comply with a police officer (F3), and menacing by stalking (F4).

On May 31st, Bolen allegedly stalked his ex-girlfriend overnight and led local law enforcement on a 30-minute high speed pursuit just after four a.m.

Bolen was reportedly stalking Denise Board, 29, of 808 Euclid Street, Bellefontaine.

A neighbor reported the incident to the Bellefontaine Police Department late on the evening of May 30th.

Bolen was reportedly in Board's backyard. He left before police arrived.

Around 4 a.m., the Champaign County Dispatch Center received a call from Bolen, who returned to Board's home. He was threatening to kill Board and himself.

The dispatch center then contacted city police.

As officers were responding, they passed Bolen near the intersection of Lawrence and Euclid.

When Bolen refused to pull over, a pursuit ensued throughout Logan and Champaign counties.

Bolen took Lawrence Street to West Williams Avenue, then turned the wrong way on Clagg Street.

He went left on Garfield Avenue, to West Columbus Avenue, to South Detroit Street, to Water Avenue, and then southbound on South Main (Route 68) towards West Liberty.

The Logan County Sheriff's Office and West Liberty Police Department assisted during the pursuit, which reached speeds of 110 MPH.

Bolen went around the block in West Liberty to avoid stop sticks at the intersection of 68 and 245.

He went north on 68 and turned onto County Road 5.

He then went southbound on County Road 1 to State Route 245 where more stop sticks were set up.

Bolen avoided the stop sticks and turned around to head northbound on 1.

He dodged stop sticks at the intersection of County Road 1 and Township Road 199.

After nearly hitting an auxiliary officer, Bolen turned around and went southbound on County Road 1 into Champaign County.

The pursuit ended when Bolen struck a utility pole on Ludlow Road near Kanagy Road.

The collision snapped the pole and brought down power lines.

Moments before the wreck, Bolen's engine blew up.

Bolen, who suffered facial injuries, was transported from the scene by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital.

Bolen was charged with three felonies, including failure to comply with an officer, menacing by stalking, and felonious assault.

Ms. Board was not injured.

The Champaign County Sheriff's Office, Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol, and Macochee Joint Ambulance District assisted.

In March, Bolen was charged with menacing by stalking and persistent disorderly conduct after he stalked Board for several days in Russells Point.

Bolen was reportedly sitting near BJ's Drive Thru watching Board, who was working at nearby Family Dollar.

Board said that Bolen was following her and stalking her at home and work.

Bolen was convicted and sentenced to 30 days in the Logan County Jail. He was released on May 27th.

Presentence investigations were ordered for Taylor, Gorham, and Bolen. They will be sentenced on November 26th.

On October 17th, Joshua McBride, 25, of Urbana, was sentenced to five years community control and ordered to pay a $500 fine, court costs, and attorney fees for theft of drugs and breaking and entering.
