Sentencing delayed for Vinton County woman
Deborah Robson charged with illegal gunfire in Wellston

Associate Editor

The case against a Vinton County woman has gone on a bit longer than expected in Jackson County Common Pleas Court, after her sentencing was continued twice in the past week.

Deborah Robson, 59, of New Plymouth, was scheduled to be sentenced last Thursday, March 9, in connection to an incident which occurred last May. Wellston Police allege Robson fired at least three gunshots at another vehicle while driving through the city of Wellston in what police dubbed a "drug deal that went bad." She was ultimately apprehended in the village of Coalton.

Robson's sentencing was continued to the morning of Monday, March 13, but that date was changed once again after Robson's defense counsel Michael Moore requested on her behalf that, should prison time be imposed, she be afforded a report date so that she could get her affairs in order. It was stated Monday that Robson is the caretaker of a handicapped relative and that her mother is currently battling cancer.

Jackson County Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher Regan expressed his reluctance to do so, and instead changed the sentencing date to Monday, March 20, at 1:30 p.m. to allow Robson to have time to make necessary arrangements.

Robson previously entered guilty pleas to charges of Discharge Of A Firearm Over A Roadway and Improper Handling Of A Firearm In A Motor Vehicle, which are felony-level 3 and 4 charges, respectively. As a result of these pleas, a felony-level 2 charge of Felonious Assault was dropped.
