Sept. 13

Kristopher D. Scott, 32, 1534 W. Sandusky St., Findlay, was sentenced to 12 months in prison for possession of drugs (heroin) and 12 months for possession of drugs (cocaine). The sentence was ordered to be served concurrent and he was given credit for 75 days served, plus any other days served while pending transfer. Charges of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, possession of drugs (heroin) and possession of drugs (methamphetamine) were dismissed.

Logan J. Pothast, 24, 14054 Road 12, Ottawa, was sentenced to 90 days jail for possession of drugs (MDMA). He was given credit for 74 days served.

Pothast was also ordered not to participate in any drug activity in any Native American church and have no contact with anyone who has done drugs in the past. Two counts possession of drugs were dismissed.

Pothast initially claimed the violations he was charged with did not apply to him because he was an American National and the court did not have jurisdiction over him. The group claims they are only answerable to their particular interpretation of common law and not subject to any statutes or proceedings at the federal, state or municipal levels. Pothast originally chose to represent himself during the case, but Putnam County Common Pleas Judge Randall Basinger appointed Robert Gryzbowski as his “shadow” attorney during the proceedings. Records show he was found with drugs in the parking lot at Ottawa-Glandorf High School.
