Two defendants were sentenced to prison among other cases disposed this week in Logan County Common Pleas Court.
Monty Jeanneret, 20, of Russells Point, was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to felonious assault.
It was actually the second time the defendant has pleaded guilty to the second-degree felony.
Confusion around a recommended sentence prompted the defendant to take back the guilty plea he had entered in September.
Logan County Prosecutors were looking to add an extra year to a prison term he is currently serving for a series of car and personal watercraft thefts. He is not due out in that case until early 2017.
The defendant’s crime in this case involved sneaking into a shower stall at the Logan County Jail and throwing piping hot water onto the chest of an inmate taking a shower.
Jail staff reported severe redness and peeling skin around the victim’s chest area.
Also sentenced were:
• Korey Grandi, 26, of Lewistown: 12 months in prison for forgery and theft;
• Charles Louden, 30, of Wapakoneta: West Central Community Based Correctional Facility and the Probation Incentive Program for a community control violation. His original charge was grand theft; and
• Jerry Givens, 37, of DeGraff: 60 days in Logan County Jail for a community control violation. His original charge was forgery.
Pleading guilty were:
• Mica Hawkins, 43, of Lakeview: two counts of trafficking in drugs;
• Arthur McKinney, 40, at large: failure to give notice of address change; and
• Lacie Green Jr., 36, at large: possession of drugs.
Presentence investigations were ordered and sentencing is Dec. 2.
