April 3, 2019

IRONTON — An Ironton man faces up to 18 months in prison after being convicted of assault on a peace officer last week in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court, according to Mike Gleichauf, an assistant prosecuting attorney.

Marcum Murphy, 31, of the 600 block of South 8th Street, Ironton, was convicted following a one-day trial before Judge Andy Ballard, Gleichauf said.

Gleichauf said he would seek the maximum sentence Wednesday since Murphy has a prior felonious assault conviction.
