Woman to be tested in solicitation case

VINDICATOR CRIME REPORTER

YOUNGSTOWN -- A municipal judge has ordered alcohol and drug evaluations for Misty Davis, who police say flagged down two Canfield men last week to trade sex for money on the South Side.

Her Youngstown lawyer, Charles E. Curry, said "this started" four years ago when Davis, then 18, became addicted to crack cocaine. He said she needs help.

Judge Robert P. Milich agreed. "Our concern is to get her treatment and break this cycle," he said Friday afternoon.

The evaluations must be completed by March 15.

Davis, 22, of Granite Avenue, was found guilty after pleading no contest to two counts of loitering to engage in solicitation.

Before her trial in Judge Milich's court, Davis chatted with court personnel, telling them that, earlier in the day, she had "got slammed" with 120 days in jail from Municipal Judge Elizabeth A. Kobly.

Judge Kobly found Davis hadn't complied with terms of probation (fines or community service) on seven convictions, including four cases of loitering for prostitution. In all, Davis has 13 loitering convictions.

Sentenced

Judge Milich sentenced Davis to 60 days in jail on each of her two new charges and gave her credit for eight days served. The time on the two cases runs concurrently with each other but consecutively to the time imposed by Judge Kobly.

For Davis, the result is 172 days in jail.

Last Wednesday, police charged Davis and Kenneth C. Shaffer Sr., 77, of Williamsburg Drive, Canfield with loitering to engage in solicitation. Last Thursday, police charged Davis and George J. Stevens, 57, of Jamison Place, Canfield with loitering to engage in solicitation

Judge Milich presided over Shaffer's case Friday afternoon. Stevens will be back in court March 17.

Shaffer, as part of a plea agreement, pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct and was found guilty.

Judge Milich sentenced Shaffer to 30 days in jail, suspended it all, fined him $100 and placed him on one year's probation.
