OVIs lead to prison for two


Two individuals were ordered to prison Monday for charges relating to driving while intoxicated.

Nicholas Creamer, 61, of Delaware, was sentenced to three years in prison in Madison County Common Pleas Court after receiving his tenth OVI charge.

Shelda Wiley, 40, of Marysville, was sentenced to six months in prison after receiving her eighth OVI charge.

“There comes a time when you just have to be held accountable for your actions,” Judge Eamon Costello told Wiley in court.

Creamer has served prison time for previous OVIs, noted assistant county prosecutor Nick Adkins. His first OVI conviction was in 1984.

Creamer was arrested June 16, 2014 for the charge. He was given a report date in August to allow him time to finish up medical treatments he is currently undergoing.

Wiley was reportedly intoxicated on prescription drugs when she was pulled over Oct. 1, 2014.

She said in court that she is working to overcome her addiction issues. She was additionally required to get treatment for alcohol addiction, which she said in court she has struggled with.

“I will beat this,” Wiley said.
