Court clerk’s spouse pleads guilty to drug charges

ELYRIA — The husband of a former Lorain Municipal Court deputy clerk of courts who has been convicted of stealing from the court system pleaded guilty Monday to drug charges.

Julio Osorio, 27, is expected to receive seven years in prison when he is sentenced later this year on charges of possession of drugs, two counts of possession of criminal tools and seven counts of drug trafficking. Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Mark Betleski has said he will consider judicial release after Osorio has served 4½ years behind bars.

Lorain police seized about 6 pounds of marijuana and about $1,000 in cash during a May 14, 2013, raid on the Columbo Lane home that he shared with Sierra Dozier.

The raid followed a series of controlled cocaine buys a police informant made with Osorio, who previously had served time on drug and weapons charges.

During the search of the house, police found Lorain Municipal Court documents, including traffic citations and clerk’s office envelopes. That evidence led to an investigation into Dozier’s activities that concluded she’d stolen thousands of dollars while working for the court.

Dozier, 26, already has pleaded guilty in federal court to mail fraud and has been sentenced to one year in prison. But she is still facing state charges in connection with the thefts from the court as well as drug charges.

Her attorney has asked Betleski to suppress the evidence against Dozier gathered during the search, arguing that the warrant was for drug activity, not allegations of theft.

Anthony Baker, Osorio’s defense attorney, said his client is ready to accept responsibility for his crimes.

“He’s a young man who made a mistake and who is willing to do the time for making the mistake,” Baker said.

Since Osorio’s arrest, Baker said his client has gotten a job and has been putting money aside to support his family, including a child Dozier is expecting, while he is incarcerated.

Both Baker and county Prosecutor Dennis Will said they didn’t believe Osorio had any substantial involvement with Dozier’s theft from the court system.

    So she is at or soon to be at club fed. Getting on the
    special expectant Mom program, have her baby at the hospital all at taxpayers’
    expense.

    The Father won’t be out for at least 4 ½ years and Mom will
    have a hard time getting a job when she is released and might have more time
    depending on what happens. Who going to raise the child ? I hope 5 years up the road these two have some common sense.

  • golfingirl

    Welcome to the world little baby…….birth certificate from a prison and no father until kindergarten.

    Totally irresponsible and sickening.

      By now everyone should have heard about Golfingirl and her refractory fairy tales. In case you haven’t heard or have even forgotten, allow me to refresh your memory. Before I get moving here, let me point out that everyone ought to read my award-winning essay, “The Naked Aggression of Golfingirl”. In it, I chronicle all of Golfingirl’s ideals from the fork-tongued to the pathetic and conclude that I am deliberately using colorful language in this letter. I am deliberately using provocative phrases that I hope will stick in the minds of my readers. I do ensure, however, that my words are always appropriate and accurate and clearly explain how Golfingirl should have been placed long ago in a locked psychiatric unit. I would have committed her to such a facility under the justification that she wants to evade responsibility. That’s indubitably a formula for repression and resentment and will lead to her distracting attention from more important issues within a short period of time.

      • golfingirl

        Can I get royalties off your book? I mean, I am the main character.

    • Godfather

      I guess you are perfect and without sin goofygirl.

      Carry on.

      Thanks!

    Is a criminal record a prerequisite to obtaining a government job in Lorain County(along with being related to an elected official)? Look at Vince Urbin, Leon Urbin, Dan Urbin. All got jobs with the county after serving time in prison. There are so many qualified people out of work, there is no reason government should hire people with criminal records. I almost always vote democrat, but the democratic party of Lorain county is rotten from the head down. Any party in power too long becomes corrupt.

    • Razorback Twou

      So people with criminal records don’t need to work?

      • golfingirl

        They can work, but as as “guardians” of my tax dollars.

        • Godfather

          If you’re confused by Golfingirl’s positions this letter will help you sort things out. It will give you a new mental map upon which to fix your own position so that you can better disabuse Golfingirl of the notion that her appalling gestapo is a respected civil-rights organization. To start, she not only lies but brags about her lying to her toadies. Naturally I’m distressed by the increasing number of people who believe that the ancient Egyptians used psychic powers to build the pyramids, but the point remains that Golfingirl dreams of a time when she’ll be free to make conditions far worse than could ever have been the case without her sanguinary efforts. That’s the way she’s planned it, and that’s the way it’ll happen—not may happen but will happen—if we don’t interfere, if we don’t punish those who lie or connive at half-truths.

          Golfingirl’s hypocrisy comes out when she denies that she surrounds herself with oppressive-to-the-core, xenophobic bigamists, which makes it obvious to me that I wonder what would happen if Golfingirl really did intensify or perpetuate warlordism. There’s a spooky thought. I’m not very conversant with her background. To be quite frank, I don’t care to be. I already know enough to state with confidence that licentious untoward-types are often found at Golfingirl’s elbow. This suggests to me that Golfingirl has commented that her den of thieves consists entirely of lovable, cuddly people who would never dream of making us less united, less moral, less sensitive, less engaged, and more perversely intemperate. I would love to refute that, but there seems to be no need, seeing as her comment is lacking in common sense.

          • golfingirl

            From above:

            “Naturally I’m distressed by the increasing number of people who believe that the ancient Egyptians used psychic powers to build the pyramids”

            What the hell does that mean?

      • stillsleepyeyes

        actually their not criminals until they work for lorain counties d’s

    • SniperFire

      Elyria and Lorain will not change. Democrat policies of suck and fail will force the responsible people to eventually leave. Politicians like Brinda who promote dependency over responsibility make places like Detroit what they are today.

  • golfingirl

    Am I the only one here who thinks The Godfather is a little strange?

    • Godfather

      You want answers?

      YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH!

      • golfingirl

        Ahhh…now I understand.

        You take the personas of various actors. Today, Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men. The past few days, Marlon Brando, as the Godfather.

        So, your ramblings are cut and pasted from anime and video game websites, and you think you are a hollywood actor(s).

        You live in a land of make-believe. Where nothing is real. There is no evil which you cannot overcome simply by pushing a button on a controller, or turning off the movie.

        Now I know why you defend criminal scum, because you have no concept of reality. In your bizarre world, you are the master. Simply turn off the power button, and it all goes away. All is good, you are at peace.

    • Godfather

      Actually, yes. You are.

      Carry on.

      Thanks!

  • golfingirl

    My apologies for the repetition:

    Nearly all Godfather’s ramblings are pieces of garbage copied from anime, punk rock and video game articles.

    Anime League, YouMacon2013, Kanye West Forum etc……they are all there.

    Word for word, a cut here, a paste there. Just insert another name and hit the “post” button.

    Simple plagiarism, nothing more. Pretty obvious by the fragmented sentences, and lack of coherency.

    Seems this is not the first board he has committed this fraud on. He spews this everywhere, until he is discovered, and then moves on.

    He has contributed absolutely nothing to any specific topic at hand. That would require independent thinking on his part, which he obviously is not capable of. He writes the same thing, on multiple boards, regardless of topic. This article is a perfect example of that.

    He wants you to disagree with him, so he can respond with the same rote reply. Not sure why this excites him, but he obvious “gets off” on it. Must feel it makes him intellectually superior, but it really only serve to show his true stupidity.

    I propose we no longer read, and definitely not respond, to this trash any longer.

    So long Godfather…….

    • Godfather

      wrong again.

      You are not very good at this.

      Thanks!

      • Godfather

        ???????????????????????????????

        Insert another name over and over?

  • bdid.d

    I can’t even stand to read a thread anymore thanks to godfather…

    • Godfather

      I am so sorry that you also can not handle the truth.

      Thanks!

      • bdid.d

        Yeah , that’s clearly the reason… not your ridiculous incoherent ramblings…

        • golfingirl

          “Can’t handle the truth”….another stolen line from Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men.

          Should have used one of his lines from “One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest,” would have been more appropriate.

  • John Demirjian

    Another example of how 12% of the population (blacks) are responsible for 50% of all crime in the United States

    • Godfather

      My thoughts exactly.
