BUCYRUS – Tammy Knipp, 34, of Marion, appeared in Crawford County’s Common Pleas Court on Tuesday pleading guilty of violating her community control terms.

Knipp was placed under community control in March after she pleaded guilty to child failure to support, a fifth degree crime that can be punished with up to 12 months in prison.

Crawford County’s Common Pleas Court Judge Sean Leuthold agreed to continue Knipps’ community scrutiny with a stern warning that she should better pay arrears and stay up to date with support. “You didn’t show up, and if you repudiate, I can send you to prison,” said Leuthold. Leuthold pointed out to Knipp that in such cases he would not send people to prison. “We would rather that defendants work and support their children,” said Leuthold.

David Rollison Jr., 31, of Marion, appeared on video from the Crawford County Jail on allegations that he had violated his control over the community.

According to probation officer Chris Heydinger, Marion Rollison had an overdose of medication on June 11, which resulted in rescue workers giving multiple doses of Narcan to resuscitate him. He later pleaded guilty to possession of substance abuse instruments and physical control of a motor vehicle in Marion. He is said to have admitted to Marion officials that he used meth and heroin or fentanyl.

Judge Leuthold ordered a full hearing and took recommendations on the loan.

Assistant Attorney Ryan Hoovler outlined a very difficult history of addiction-related crimes.

Hoover told the court that since he was placed under community control in May 2018, he had broken parole by testing positive for drugs.

Probation officer Chris Heydinger told the court that he had overdosed three weeks after this violation and was found unresponsive in a car wash in Marion. He also told the court that Rollison is now being charged by Marion on new crime charges.

Assistant Attorney Ryan Hoovler expressed deep concern for Rollison’s welfare: “A cash loan is necessary because he is using very dangerous drugs in his absence and is almost dying. To protect the public and himself from his continued drug use, the state would require a $ 75,000 loan. ”

Bucyrus attorney Neil Huggins advocated a loan on Rollison’s behalf. Huggins told the court that Rollison had a good job and good family support. He asked the court for a personal guarantee of recognition or a manageable amount of bail that is far below the state’s requirement.

Judge Leuthold appointed lawyer Ed Bibler to represent Rollison. He revoked his previous $ 25,000.00 loan. He ordered Rollison to be held on a new bond of $ 50,000.00.
