GEORGETOWN, Ohio — Two people were sentenced to prison last week in Brown County by the Court of Common Pleas following their indictments for drug trafficking.

Roxanne Barbara Bourg Hayes, 29, had an eight count indictment filed against her on Feb 22. The indictment charged Hayes with four counts of fourth-degree aggravated trafficking in drugs, two counts of fourth-degree trafficking in heroin and two counts of fifth-degree trafficking in cocaine.

Hayes pleaded guilty to the two counts of trafficking in heroin on June 22 before the court. On the same day Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler sentenced Hayes to 11 months confinement in the Ohio Department of Corrections for each count. Both sentences will be served consecutively.

All other counts in the indictment were dismissed. The court will consider judicial release for Hayes into an in-patient drug treatment program that accepts children at the appropriate time.

Bryan M. Kenney, 32, had a two-count indictment filed against him on May 31. He was charged with second-degree aggravated trafficking in drugs and second-degree aggravated possession of drugs.

Kenney pleaded guilty to the drug trafficking charge before the court on June 20, where it was amended to a third-degree felony.

On the same day, Gusweiler sentenced Kenney to 30 months confinement in the Ohio Department of Corrections. The court may consider judicial release of Kenney into STAR, with aftercare with Veterans’ Affairs, at the appropriate time.
