Man sentenced


A Newton Falls man was sentenced to eight years in prison after he pleaded guilty to 17 counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving minors. Paul Bidwell III, 39, of Newton Drive, appeared in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on Thursday. The judge ordered Bidwell to register as a sex offender after prison.

Bidwell was arrested in March after being secretly indicted by a Trumbull County grand jury.

Woman charged


An East Philadelphia Avenue woman was in the Mahoning County jail on Thursday, charged with felonious assault and criminal damaging. A woman told police she was in the waiting room of a Market Street doctor’s office about 8:45 a.m. when she and Airiel Tarver, 20, began to argue. The woman said Tarver punched her in the face. She struck back, and Tarver pulled a knife and tried to stab her. When an officer told Tarverthat she was being charged with felonious assault, Tarver began kicking and punching the cage inside of a cruiser, reports said. That resulted in the criminal damaging charge.
