Lorain man sentenced in dispute
A 24-year-old Lorain man was sentenced to 10 days in Lorain County Jail and two years of community control for his involvement in a domestic dispute and drug charges on Nov. 13
Deandre Humphrey, 24, of Lorain, pleaded guilty to charges of domestic violence, illegal conveyance into a detention facility and possession of schedule II narcotics and marijuana, in the court of Common Pleas Judge John R. Miraldi.
On April 25 Humphrey was arrested following a complaint from a 29-yearold woman who told police he assaulted her following an argument where he allegedly followed her into a bedroom and “grabbed me from behind my neck,” according to a police report. Officers noticed a large clump of hair had been pulled from the woman’s scalp in addition to red marks on her right arm.
After being taken into custody and transported to the Lorain City Jail officers detected a strong odor of marijuana as Humphrey was changing into his jail uniform. He first denied concealing anything on his person before two small plastic bags fell from inside of his underwear as he was handing it over to officers. The bags contained 16.5 grams of marijuana and 17 white pills determined to be Oxycodone.
Upon learning he would face additional charges, Humphrey began banging his head against the surrounding walls and threatened to “Aaron Hernandez himself,” which officers believed to be street terminology for committing suicide in jail, the report said.
