Court holds morning of arraignment hearings

GREENVILLE – Friday morning was a busy one in the Darke County Common Pleas Court. The court heard numerous arraignments following the June indictments handed down by a Grand Jury.

The cases involved several drug-related offenses, from heroin, to cocaine, marijuana and LSD. There were also felonious assault, domestic violence and sex cases heard by the judge.

Bryan Wombolt appeared for his arraignment on the newly filed Sexual Battery charges that were a result of the former auxiliary deputy having sexual misconduct with a high school student. Wombolt, like most of the indicted defendants Friday was given an Own Recognizance (OR) bond. He is scheduled for a status conference hearing August 11 at 3:15 p.m.

Ty Howell, a 21-year-old admitted heroin addict, was the only person on arraigned to be jailed with a cash bond. After attorney David A. Rohrer, members of the Adult Probation Department and Howell’s own mother told Judge Jonathan P. Hein about Howell’s very serious addiction and two recent overdoses, he was jailed on a $100,000 for heroin-related charges.

“I would rather have jailed client, than a dead client,” Rohrer told the court.
