Man pleads guilty to drug trafficking

LISBON – Raymond D. Sykes, 25, Youngstown, pleaded guilty to trafficking in drugs for having cocaine available for sale in the vicinity of a school on June 8, 2010. He faces up to 12 months in prison, a five-year license suspension and a $2,500 fine. Sentencing is set for June 12.

Authorities were awarded possession of $24,056 along with a plethora of collector’s coins and postage stamps forfeited by Paul K. Donavich because the courts believed the items to have been obtained through drug-related criminal activities. Donavich was sentenced in March for possession of marijuana for having between 200 and 1,000 grams of marijuana in his possession on May 15, 2012.

Joshua D. Baker, 29, James Drive, Wellsville, was sentenced to nine months in prison for receiving stolen property for having a 2000 Dodge Stratus belonging to Carol Adams on Aug. 18, 2012.
