Huffman receives two years of probation in federal case



A Zanesfield man who admitted he conspired with Todd Lamb to steal excavating equipment and resell it was given two years of federal probation after serving one day of confinement.

Daniel J. Huffman, 28, received his sentence Tuesday more than 2 1/2 years after he pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy.

Three counts of unlawful interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles were dropped in exchange for his plea and a pledge to truthfully testify against Mr. Lamb.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson imposed the sentence and ordered Mr. Huffman to pay his share of $29,500 in restitution.

Mr. Huffman is the second person sentenced in the case which dates to March 2007, when Mr. Lamb shot the tires of a dump truck during a dispute outside Mr. Lamb’s business at 1771 County Road 130.
