Felder sentenced to prison

GEORGETOWN — Isaiah Felder’s latest brush with the law has landed him behind bars for the foreseeable future.

The former Georgetown High School basketball star was sentenced on Monday, July 20, to 14 months in the Ohio Department of Corrections for his second probation violation following a guilty verdict for domestic violence in September 2014.

Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler told Felder during a hearing on Monday how disappointed he was that he violated his probation again.

“You were sitting right there telling me to give you another chance, after I sat right here and gave you that chance,” Gusweiler said. “After I sat out in the hallway and gave you a hug, and I said how much of a good guy you have the ability to be, how much upside that you have, how we were here to help you, and we wanted to help you. And I get nothing.”

Felder admitted to violating the terms of his community control by drinking alcohol. A crash report from the Ohio State Highway Patrol states that on the evening of July 4, Felder was reportedly involved in two car accidents, the second of which he crashed his car into an embankment after hitting a car full of children. No one was injured in either of the accidents.

Felder allegedly attempted to escape on foot following the second crash on Old US 68 in Pleasant Township and was eventually apprehended by the OSHP, with help from the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, according to the patrol.

The reported stated Felder, 27, was transported to Mt. Orab Mercy Hospital to treat injuries suffered due to not wearing a seat belt in his car, before being arraigned and incarcerated in the Brown County Adult Detention Center in the early hours of July 5.

At the hearing, Felder apologized to his family, the court, and the families of the two vehicles that he reportedly hit a little more than two weeks ago.

“I want to say sorry for the people that I hit when (I was) being drunk,” Felder said.

Labeling Felder as a danger to the public and as someone who had lost his right to community control, Gusweiler gave Felder a sentence that will put him behind bars for at least the next 14 months.

Felder was granted credit for time served both in the Brown County Jail and with the STAR program, which he had entered in 2014.
