WELLSBORO - Nine people were sentenced Monday in Tioga County Court, with President Judge Robert E. Dalton Jr. presiding.
One person was sentenced to intermediate punishment:
Nathan B. Maldona, 32, of 40 Decker St., Mansfield, six months with the first 30 days under house arrest/electronic monitoring and a $750 fine for driving under the influence, a second conviction within 10 years, on June 13, 2010, on East Avenue.
One person was sentenced to probation:
Daniel JK Paxson, 21, of 11 Cowanesque St., Tioga, 24 months and a $150 fine for possession of contraband/controlled substance. According to police, on Jan. 15, 2010, Paxson put 12 Tramadol pills, a non-narcotic pain reliever, into a wastebasket in the men's bathroom under a garbage liner in the lobby of the Tioga County Prison. The drugs were picked up by inmate Brennan V. West, 26, of Mansfield, who was cleaning the bathroom as a member of a custodial crew and was found with the pills during a search. West then was to deliver the pills to Paxson's younger brother, Paul E. Paxson, 20, of 6 Water St., Wellsboro, also an inmate, police said.
In January of this year, West was sentenced to three months in the Tioga County Prison and 36 months' total supervision for possession of contraband/non-controlled substance. In November, the younger Paxson was sentenced to one to two years in state prison for criminal conspiracy.
