Jason Cope, 38, Silliman Street, pleaded guilty to OVI second offense, attempting to use deception to obtain dangerous drugs and falsification. Additionally he stipulated to a probation violation charge.
Do you know how much jail time he got for these four offenses? Zippy. Squadoosh. Nada. He had already been …

Judge Mark Frost sentenced Cope to 120 days in jail for the probation violation and 180 days in jail for each of the other three charges, but allowed Cope to serve them concurrently to his prison charge. He was granted credit for 16 days already served.
Additionally, Frost suspended Cope’s license for two years and fined him $1,175.
