Corbin Sexton, 19, was sentenced to one year in the Logan County Jail, six months at the West Central Community-Based Correctional Facility, and four years of community control on his convictions for unlawful discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises, a felony of the third degree; assault, a felony of the fourth degree; and harassment with a bodily substance, a felony of the fifth degree.
Logan County Prosecutor Eric Stewart and Sexton’s defense attorney, Marc Triplett, jointly recommended the sentence.
Sexton’s convictions stemmed from an incident Feb. 20, during which he fired shots with a shotgun near 105 Beech Avenue.
Witnesses told law enforcement the defendant fired four shots and was shooting from the hip. Sexton said at the sentencing hearing that he was distraught over breaking up with his girlfriend.
The Court reserved an aggregate prison sentence of 54 months that could be entered if Sexton violates the terms and conditions of his community control.
In addition, Judge Braig sentenced Davante Lyburtus-Ratleff to 60 days in the Logan County Jail, five years of community control including that he complete batterer’s intervention counseling on his convictions for attempted felonious assault, a felony of the third degree; domestic violence, a misdemeanor of the first degree; and three counts of assault, all misdemeanors of the first degree.
The Court reserved a prison sentence of 36 months, the maximum sentence applicable to a felony of the third degree.
Logan County Assistant Prosecutor Sarah Warren recommended the sentence at
Lyburtus-Ratleff’s change of plea hearing.
Lyburtus-Ratleff’s convictions stemmed from an incident May 2. On that date, law enforcement responded to a report of a fight involving multiple males. At the scene, the victim reported Lyburtus Ratleff assaulted her and the subsequent fight was sparked when an third-person came to her aid.
