A Mount Orab man appearing on a bench warrant in the Hillsboro Municipal Court on Monday was sentenced to 90 days in jail on a probation violation.
According to court records, Steven Jordan, 41, was found guilty of first-degree misdemeanor operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI) last month.
He was placed on reporting probation. All but three days of a 180-day jail sentence were suspended on the condition that Jordan obtain counseling at FRS, complete at three-day driver intervention program, pay a $500 fine, and possess no alcohol.
Hillsboro Municipal Court Judge David H. McKenna said last month that Jordan was previously ordered to possess no alcohol in 2013, when he was convicted of aggravated menacing.
As such, he was found guilty of a probation violation last month, and 87 days of a previously suspended sentence were set for December.
On Monday, Jordan appeared on a warrant that was issued earlier this month for failure to comply with the probation department, records showed.
He was found guilty of a probation violation, and 90 days of the sentence on his OVI case were imposed. Records added that Jordan may be furloughed to inpatient treatment.
Also found guilty of a probation violation was Jerry Hodge, 20, Greenfield. He appeared on a bench warrant that was issued last December after he failed to appear for a review hearing.

A 90-day jail sentence was suspended on the condition that Hodge have no contact with Walmart or Walgreens, that he obtain counseling at FRS, and that he complete school. He was placed on reporting probation.
Records added that, since his conviction, Hodge has been found guilty of a probation violation. He was later furloughed to complete inpatient treatment.
