A West Liberty man was sentenced to prison this week in Logan County Common Pleas Court for breaking into a family member’s house on separate occasions.
Wade Clem, 31, of West Liberty, was sentenced to four years in prison for burglary.
He pleaded guilty to the charge last month.
The defendant was arrested in September after he burglarized his aunt’s residence at 8053 Township Road 166, West Liberty.
The defendant broke into the victim’s house on two separate occasions, taking cash and assorted loose change.
The first time she discovered her nephew had reportedly burglarized her residence, Anna Clem was willing to settle the matter by working with her family. She pressed charges following the second burglary, according to incident reports.
Pleading guilty were:
• Michael Fette, 47, of Lancaster: aggravated robbery and kidnapping. A presentence investigation was ordered and he will be sentenced May 27. Related story: Suspect indicted for Community Market robbery;

• Cody Sloas, 20, of Lakeview: breaking and entering and theft; and Robert Lawrence, 37, of Kenton: passing bad checks. Both defendants were placed on the prosecutor’s pretrial diversion program.
