New Philadelphia, Ohio (WTUZ) – A reserved sentence was handed down for a 27-year-old charged in connection with the death of a Dennison man.

Robert Bayliss pleaded no contest in June to the amended charge of corrupting another with drugs.

Tuscarawas County Assistant Prosecutor Mike Ernest explains that Bayliss was sentenced Monday for the 3rd-degree felony.

“Received the promise sentence of three years of prison and those years were reserved by Judge O’Farrell and he was placed on Community Control Sanctions.”

As a condition, Bayliss must spend 180 days in the Tuscarawas County Jail.

According to the charge, in 2017, Bayliss provided a mixture of heroin and fentanyl to a 29-year-old from Dennison.

“A very unfortunate situation where David Albright Jr. had received these drugs. Ultimately, the coroner made a determination that Albright’s death was related to those substances.”

Bayliss will have to adhere to the limitations placed under Community Control Sanctions. - Mary Alice Reporting
