09/24/09 Greenwich larcenist in prison after violating probation

Dawn Jessop avoided prison last spring despite her involvement in an extortion scheme involving Stephen Dent, a DuPont heir in Greenwich, Conn.

However, the 29-year-old Brae Burn Road woman is behind bars today after violating her probation. Last week, Jessop was sentenced in Richland County Common Pleas Court to 18 months at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville in an unrelated case, having violated probation on seven counts before completing her second week on supervision.

Jessop's attorney, Allen D. Werstiuk, did not return calls seeking comment.

Her husband, Christopher Jessop, 30, is serving an 18-month sentence at Bridgeport Correctional Facility in Connecticut, where he has been since March 18.

Dawn Jessop also pleaded guilty to first-degree larceny and received a five-year suspended prison sentence in the Connecticut case, which drew nationwide attention. The Madison Comprehensive High School graduate received three years probation.

Greenwich police reported the couple used a Web site where wealthy men and women pay for companionship. The Jessops, who resided in Mansfield, were arrested in Greenwich in a sting after trying to extort money from Dent.

Having returned to Mansfield in May, Dawn Jessop faced a charge of illegal processing of drug documents, stemming from a Nov. 17 arrest on a fourth-degree felony drug possession charge.

On July 15, Richland County Common Pleas Judge James Henson ordered Dawn Jessop, who pleaded guilty, be placed on three years community control. Less than two weeks later, on July 28, Mansfield police stopped her. Richland County Adult Probation Officer Dan George told the court Aug. 3 that Jessop was stopped July 29 for driving under suspension and subsequently arrested.

"The subject was followed in her vehicle to Davis Street," George wrote. "... officers located an oxycodone on the driver's seat and a cellular phone. The cellular phone revealed pornography of the subject and communication with the subject's husband and (another subject). It was also learned that (Jessop) went to (the other subject's) home during restricted curfew hours and spent the night.

"Further, (she) tested positive for oxycodone and refused to name the person she received the narcotics from when ordered to do so by this officer. (Jessop) was granted great leniency in sentencing given her recent legal issues, and yet managed to break no less than nine of her conditions prior to completing her second week on ISP supervision."

Probation violations cited in court records show driving under suspension, possession of oxycodone, testing positive for oxycodone, in possession of a cellular phone, in possession of pornography, disobeying a direct order from a supervising officer and communicating with her husband via cellular phone in violation of a supervising officer's order.

The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction Web site reported Dawn Jessop was admitted to the Marysville prison Sept. 17, and will remain there through March 6, 2011.

This is the Best model made by Bowflex. This is a top of the line piece of commercial quality gym equipment. It simply doesn't get any better than this machine. Save OVER $1600 if purchased new today, and it was barely used.....IT DOES EVERYTHING including 100 + workouts routines which will help you to achieve amazing results. Rated top gym in 2 fitness magazines: Men’s Health Magazine had nothing but positive things to say about this model. The machine came out to $3,500+ new with tax & shipping to get to me in CT where I purchased it. I know as I used my neighbors for 6 months 3 times a week before buying my own. This is by far one of the highest quality home gyms I have ever seen, tried, or experienced. The weight is as consistent as machines you find in a gym costing thousands. The limited space that the Revolution takes up is simply amazing when you realize just how much it can actually do! Changing from one exercise to the next takes literally seconds. The most impressive thing about the Bowflex Revolution is the QUALITY. It's smooth, it’s durable, and it's convenient! It's a great product! It folds upright and locks in place for a smaller footprint when not in use if space is tight....see pictures below. If you're thinking about buying one of these new you're going to save $1700 for the exact same machine. This works perfectly, but since I moved, I have no room for it and have it setup in my garage. Please refrain from making ridiculous offers. This is very high end piece of commercial quality gym equipment. For that matter, I cannot respond to any offers less than $1,800.At my asking price you are getting a great deal! When you see it how well this machine works, you will understand. This is a great home gym at a fraction of the price. CASH & PICKUP ONLY.
