Fugitive said to be violent – Here we go again?

I wonder once they catch this perp IF we will get to hear his side in all of this? We all know how easy it is to get charged for some, so I’m curious if he’s just rubbed the wrong person wrong knowing he doesn’t have a criminal history, but now they are calling him “violent”.

MANSFIELD — James Devore doesn’t have a long criminal history.

“But what he does have is violent in nature,” Richland County Probation Officer J.J. Bittinger said.

Devore, 42, has two warrants. He is wanted by Lexington police for menacing by stalking and by Mansfield Municipal Court for misdemeanor aggravated menacing.

In October, Devore was sentenced to probation for aggravated menacing. Since then, he violated the terms of his probation. Lexington police recently issued the felony warrant against Devore.

“It is apparent that Devore has not been able to follow the rules as set by the court and his probation officer and has picked up a new charge as a result of his actions,” Bittinger said.

Devore is believed to be in the Mansfield area. He was last known to drive a green Chrysler Pacifica.

Devore is 5 feet, 9 inches and weighs 230 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the county division of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 419-774-3565 or 866-4-WANTED.

People also can text the keyword “WANTED” and send a tip to 847411, or go to a link at www.usmarshals.gov. Reward money is available, but tipsters also can remain anonymous.

“Most Wanted” is a weekly feature of the News Journal.

Mark rarely does updates, I remember the story he did for the Stalker Mayer and left us with he was writing the Governor to get his job back and we never heard the answer.

I just love the MNJ’s one sided stories that make what could be a good guy snap! Remember when I was spreading the TRUTH in the Mayer case and all the threats I was getting? It cooled down, but surely once they read this reminder it may piss them off again? Still waiting to hear what the Governor said…
