A Toledo man was sentenced to a year in prison in connection with the summer murder of a Perrysburg woman.
Raul Moya, 18, of Toledo, pleaded guilty Oct. 24 to obstructing justice.
On Friday Wood County Common Pleas Court Judge Alan Mayberry ordered Moya to spend one year in prison.
Moya's older brother, Jose, is awaiting trial for the murder of Leandra Frankum, who was shot on July 22 in Perrysburg Township.
Raul Moya appeared in his orange jail uniform with his attorney Christopher Zografides, who asked the court to place his client on community control sanctions for five years.
Zografides said this was his first felony offense as an adult and also referenced several "scrapes with the law" as a juvenile.
"It's time to put this behind me and move forward with my life," Moya told the judge, having to repeat himself when he spoke too softly the first time.
The prosecutor's office also recommended community control sanctions.
Mayberry addressed Moya, noting his lengthy criminal history for a man his age including numerous juvenile charges.
"You have quite a criminal resume," the judge said.
He listed roughly a dozen charges and/or convictions on his record since 2008. His past record includes felonious assault, aggravated robbery, attempted murder as a juvenile which was moved over to Lucas County Common Pleas Court for him to be tried as an adult. Those charges were later dismissed. He has also been charged with aggravated menacing, a felony firearms violation, with this being what the judge called "your third obstructing offense."
The judge cited the pre-sentence investigation which shows Moya has an eighth-grade education and has never held a job. He is also facing felony charges out of Monroe County, Mich.
"You have shown no genuine remorse," said Mayberry, who referenced recidivism factors. "With your history of criminal convictions, all indicators show you are a high risk of re-offending."
The judge told him with his past appearances in the courts, "Nothing has seemed to deter you, and you seem to be getting progressively more and more serious charges."
The 12-month prison sentence has three years of post release control sanctions. Moya was given credit for time served.
