MOUNT VERNON — The daughter-in-law of a woman killed in a car crash made a direct plea to Knox County Common Pleas Judge Richard Wetzel when asking the man responsible get prison.
Debra Sheldon asked Wetzel at the Friday probation violation sentencing hearing of Devin E. Frazee, 32, whether he was upholding a promise to voters that he would hold convicted felons accountable. Frazee was on probation on an aggravated vehicular homicide charge in the death of Lois Badger, Sheldon’s mother-in-law, when he tested positive for cocaine Oct. 9, 2017.
Wetzel sentenced Frazee to additional community control sanctions, adding another year to Frazee’s probation and placing him on a daily reporting schedule with his probation officer. Frazee was facing up to three years in prison on the probation violation.
