City man accused of gang membership gets probation



Published: Fri, May 27, 2011 @ 2:33 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A man who authorities said had ties to a local South Side gang has received probation for felony trafficking in marijuana and ordered to stay away from suspected gang members.

Jeremiah McClarin, 25, Wolosyn Circle, had been indicted on a single count of trafficking in marijuana and later pleaded guilty to that charge. He had been associated with the state and federal investigation into the LSP Gang.

LSP stands for LaClede, Sherwood and Parkview avenues — the South Side streets from which the gang ran its suspected criminal enterprise for more than 10 years, according to state and federal authorities.

McClarin, standing today before Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court, emphatically denied any ties to gang life or a criminal enterprise.

McClarin told the judge he has had the same job for more than 18 months and does not associate with gang members.

Judge D’Apolito said he understands that McClarin had been accused of being a gang member, but said there is no proof beyond those allegations.

Judge D’Apolito, citing McClarin’s minimal record, appearance in court and employment status, said there seems to be little chance of recidivism for McClarin. He sentenced McClarin to two years’ probation with random drug testing. He also ordered McClarin to stay away from any gang members.

OK, so he can't be proved a gang member. So what about the felony marijuana trafficking? Probation? Some people around here get harsher sentences for marijuana possession. What a joke!

So he gets busted for trafficking in marijuana and gets a slap on the wrist and told to stay away from gang members. Is Judge D'Apolito really that "stupid?" These losers must really love going before him! smh

If you think Judge D'Apolito is stupid, how about the people who voted for him? This is why the crime problem in the valley won't get cleaned up. D'Apolito should go to jail for impersonating a Judge.
