WOODSTOCK -- A Mt. Jackson man received 18 months to serve in prison for six crimes he has admitted to in Shenandoah County Circuit Court.

Curtis John Fredericks, 25, received 17 years total, but most of that was suspended, and four other charges were dropped, as part of a plea agreement last week. He was a co-defendant in the cases of Mt. Jackson brothers Zeb and Mark Wilson, who were sentenced earlier this month to serve a combined three years and 10 months behind bars for 20 crimes, including burglaries, grand larcenies and drug possession. Sheriff Timothy C. Carter has said the group "wreaked havoc" on the southern portion of the county.

Fredericks pleaded guilty to two charges of selling oxycodone and one charge of grand larceny of a firearm from McGaheysville resident Justin Baxter, all occurring in Shenandoah County, records state. Three charges from Frederick County, stemming from a May 30 incident, were transferred and included in the agreement. Those charges were assault and battery of a police officer, eluding police and misdemeanor DUI.

Fredericks is required to pay $1,600 in restitution, including $500 to Baxter.
In other court matters:

• Brian Lemon, 36, of Stephens City, received six months in jail for violating his probation.
Lemon was sentenced to five years in prison in 2005 for the armed robbery of the Strasburg Rite-Aid, and recently violated his probation with larceny and DUI charges in Winchester and Frederick County.

• Jimmy Lee Gibson, 28, and Christina Sue Ritchie, 30, both of 11197 Dakota Lane, Harrisonburg, pleaded guilty to two charges apiece of larceny and one charge of burglary, and had their cases sent to Rockingham County for sentencing.
They stole generators from two locations in July 2009.

• Patty Sue Long, 36, of 2798 River Road, New Market, was sentenced to two years in prison, all suspended, for hit and run.

• David M. Coltraine, 34, of Asheville, N.C., received 30 days in jail, with 15 to serve, for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

• Caitlin Michelle-Vargas, 19, of Oakton, was placed on first-offender status for possession of Ecstasy.
She had been listed as Kathleen Eden Vargas.
