A cocaine possession charge brought against a Lynn man arrested after a controlled drug buy in Gloucester was continued without a finding Friday in Gloucester District Court.
Judge Joseph Jennings continued the case against Juan Rodriguez-Rosari, 21, of 112 South St., Lynn, until September 2013, and placed him on probation, subject to drug and alcohol screens.
Rodriguez was also charged with possessing drugs in a school zone, resisting arrest, and failure to stop for police.
He pleaded guilty to the resisting arrest charge, for which he was fined $100 and also placed on probation through September 2013.
Police arrested Rodriguez after a confidential source told officers he had purchased cocaine from Rodriguez.
Under police supervision, the source called Rodriguez to buy 3.5 grams of cocaine for $160. Officers set up a controlled buy, and after carrying it out on Herrick Court, police were waiting for him on Friend Street.
When police activated the lights on an undercover car, Rodriguez tried to back around them and head down the other side of Friend street. But he lost control of his vehicle and damaged a parked car and a rock wall around 31 Friend Street.
Rodriguez then tried to run from his vehicle, and was tackled by an officer and arrested.
Charges of drunken driving and leaving the scene of property damage accident brought against a Gloucester woman Friday were continued without a finding.
Bisa Connors, 54, of 42 Harrison Ave., admitted to sufficient facts regarding the charges, and Jennings continued both without a finding until June 2013.
Connors will be on probation requiring alcohol screens until then. Jennings also ordered Connors to pay a total of $600 in head injury, victim witness, and drunken driving victims assessments.
According to court documents, officers arrested Connors at her home Feb. 19 after receiving a call about an erratic operator.
They found Connors' vehicle hanging out of a parking space at 42 Harrison Ave. A resident at the scene told them Connors had struck her car, and a rock wall. Connors vehicle's passenger side mirror had been broken off as well.
Officers found Connors, who was intoxicated, inside her home, and arrested her soon after.
Assault and battery charges brought against a Gloucester man were dismissed in Gloucester District Court Friday.
Jennings dismissed the charges, brought against Jonathan Dills, 26, of Dudley, for failure to prosecute.
Police arrested Dills at 49 Lepage Lane after receiving a report of a domestic assault. When they arrived, a woman living at the residence told them the two had been fighting and that Dills had left.
He returned to the residence shortly after police arrived, and the woman told them that the two had thrown things at each other and he pulled her hair.
A Rockport man facing larceny and forgery charges in court Friday pleaded guilty to multiple charges and was given a six-month suspended jail sentence.
Jennings placed Seth Lospennato, 35, of 4 Kitefield Road in Rockport, on both the six-month suspended jail sentence and probation until March 2013. Lospennato pleaded guilty to a charge of receiving a credit card under improper circumstances, forging a document and uttering a false writing.
Rockport police arrested Lospennato last Sept. 30 after a woman came into the station to report that her pocketbook had been stolen.
The next day, she found that her card had been used at Cumberland Farms near the Whistlestop Mall to buy a half-gallon of milk, two liters of soda, three packs of cigarettes and an iced coffee. When police reviewed the store's tapes and purchase records, they saw that Lospennato had used the card, and signed his name for it.
Police arrested Lospennato outside his home soon after.
Assault and battery charges brought against Amy Seidenfuss, 29, of 18 Bayberry Heights Road were dismissed in court Friday based on a failure to prosecute.
Police responded to the residence in January on a report that a woman had fallen. When officers arrived, they found a woman holding a damp cloth to her right eye. She said that Seidenfuss had hit her with a laptop. Officers arrested Seidenfuss at the residence.
Assault and battery charges facing John Zaleski, 37, of no known address, were also dismissed for failure to prosecute.
Police arrested Zaleski after he called to report that a woman had fallen in the shower at the Captain's Lodge motel. When police arrived, they found the door locked.
Assuming the woman was in need of treatment, officers kicked the door open. They found the woman had been struck several times in the face, and she told them Zaleski had hit her.
