PARIS – The following appeared before Oxford County Superior Court Judge Robert E. Crowley in Thursday’s proceedings:

Michael Gray, 21, of Rumford pleaded guilty to stealing drugs and was sentenced to 90 days in jail. He will have to pay a $400 fine when released.

The charge stemmed from a May 16 incident when a resident told the Rumford Police Department that $300 in cash and about 100 morphine pills were stolen from her. A neighbor reported that Gray had showed up at her house with the pills, police records state.

The incident happened in a posted “drug-free” zone.

Randolph L. Lego, 49, of Hanover pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and violating conditions of release.

He was arrested after an Oct. 1 incident where a Bethel man was stabbed at his home. It began as a family dispute, police said.

The court allowed Lego to remain out on bail, with the condition that he have no contact with the victim, weapons or alcohol.

Leroy Howard, 29, of Lisbon was sentenced to six years in prison after violating his probation. Thursday, he admitted to operating under the influence and operating after revocation.

Joseph O’Connor, assistant district attorney for Oxford County, said that Howard has a lengthy criminal history with several charges of operating under the influence.

“When he’s sober he’s fine; when he’s drinking he’s not so fine,” O’Connor said.

Crowley granted a one day stay of execution for Howard so he could spend a day with his children.
