PARIS – Several people entered guilty pleas Monday and Tuesday in Oxford County Superior Court.

Arthur P. Madden Jr., 51, of 429 Bolsters Mills Road in Otisfield, pleaded guilty to unlawful furnishing of cocaine on Tuesday. Assistant Attorney General David Fisher said a police officer found eight-and-a-half grams of cocaine on Madden during a traffic stop last November.

Justice Roland Cole sentenced Madden to six months of a three-year prison sentence, with two years of probation and a $400 fine. Madden also pleaded guilty to violation of conditions of release and admitted to an $842 criminal forfeiture in a separate matter, for which he will serve a concurrent 30-day sentence.

Timothy A. Frisk, 27, of 95 Maine Ave. in Rumford pleaded guilty to an amended charge of Class B trafficking of scheduled drugs on Monday. Frisk was indicted in April on an aggravated trafficking charge after police bought hydrocodone from him in a controlled purchase within a school zone.

Justice Thomas E. Delahanty II sentenced Frisk to a fully suspended three-year prison sentence, one year of probation and a $400 fine.

Charles E. Lavallee, 38, of 295 Thistle St. in Upton, pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal threatening and reckless conduct after the charges were amended from felonies. Lavallee was accused of threatening three men with a 9 mm handgun in April during an argument over money.

Cole gave Lavallee a two-year deferred disposition, during which time he must refrain from the excessive use of alcohol, not use or possess illegal drugs or firearms, have no contact with the men or three other individuals, and pay $1,212.24 in restitution to one of the men involved in the incident.

If Lavallee meets those requirements, he may withdraw his plea to the criminal threatening charge and pay a $500 fine on the reckless conduct charge.

Lori Minta, 29, of 131 Pine Point Road in Oxford, pleaded guilty Monday to marijuana cultivation after the charge was amended from a felony. Minta was indicted in February on charges of marijuana cultivation and unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs.

According to court documents, police found 244 marijuana plants at Minta’s residence. Delahanty ordered Minta to pay a $400 fine.

Cody Jonah Kreworuka, 22, of 22 Turner St. in Buckfield, pleaded guilty Monday to assault after the charge was amended from aggravated assault. Kreworuka was accused of stabbing his father in the head with a pair of scissors in May.

Delahanty ordered Kreworuka to serve a one-year deferred disposition, during which he must take prescribed medication and not possess weapons. The charge may be dropped if he successfully meets those requirements.
