A Bellefontaine man was ordered to serve two years in prison for sexual battery, while a Toledo man was ordered to serve two years and pay more than $14,300 in restitution for his conviction.
Charles E. Roberts III, age, 56, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of sexual battery, knowingly coerced of his actions last June involving a 39-year-old woman. He was originally indicted with two counts of rape. The one charge was amended through a plea agreement, with the second count dismissed.
Roberts was sentenced by Judge Alan Mayberry and ordered that he must register as a Tier III sexual offender.
Milton Milford Wetzel II, 41, of Toledo, was convicted for engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity for his actions involving thefts from various box stores. In addition to the two years in prison Mayberry ordered him to pay restitution in varying amounts to Lowe's, Home Depot, Kohl's and Menards totaling $14,361.41. That payment was ordered jointly and severally with his codefendants.
Others recently sentenced to prison include:
•    Bernard Pitts, 43, of Lima, is set to serve four years in prison for his conviction of drug possession, a second-degree felony. Pitts was also fined $7,500. (Judge Robert Pollex)
•    Ashley Shaffer, 23, of Lyons, 30 months for grand theft for a May 25, 2011 theft of a 9mm Glock handgun. She must also pay restitution in the amount of $1,317. (Pollex)
•    Martin A. Gaines, 46, listed in custody at the jail, ordered for 17 months on one count of receiving stolen property and 11 months on a second similar count to be consecutive for an aggregate total of 28 months. (Pollex)
•    Joshua A. Townsend, 40, of Bowling Green, 11 months for receiving stolen property. He must also pay restitution in the amount of $520, jointly and severally with his codefendant. (Mayberry)
•    Adam Fizer, 30, of Oregon, 11 months, each, for violating his community control sanctions on his conviction for receiving stolen property and for theft. The sentences are to be served concurrent with one another. (Judge Reeve Kelsey)
•    William Miller, 48, of Toledo, and formerly of Everman, Texas, 11 months for non support of dependents. Judgment was also awarded for the support payments. (Mayberry)
•    Gregorio Gonzalez III, 29, of Gibsonburg, six months for failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer. (Mayberry)
•    Victor Sarver, 32, of Louisville, Ky., 11 months for aggravated possession of drugs, plus a $1,000 fine. His driver's license was suspended for one year and he was ordered to forfeit $628 seized at the time of his arrest. (Kelsey)
•    Charles Jones, 42, of Huntington, W.Va., 11 months for drug possession of heroin. The sentence was ordered to be served consecutively to his sentence out of Ross County. (Pollex)
•    Donald Jones, 22, of Olive Hill, Ky., and co-defendant Phillip E. Johnson, 35, of Grayson, Ky., nine months each for trafficking in drugs. After their release each will be subject to a driver's license suspension of one year and each required to pay a mandatory fine of $5,000. (Mayberry)
•    A 32-year-old Rossford man, formerly of Perrysburg, 18 months for domestic violence. It was ordered to be served consecutive to a prison sentence in a separate case. In that case, the man was ordered to prison after being found in violation of his community controls sanction. In the initial case he was ordered to 18 months for domestic violence and 18 months for menacing by stalking. All were ordered to be served consecutively for an aggregate total of 54 months.  (Mayberry)
Prison sentences carry varying terms of post-release control sanctions, formerly called parole. Should a person on such sanctions they can be re-sentenced to additional time.
In addition to those sent to prison, David Good, 27, of Fostoria, was sentenced to 60 days in jail on two counts of sexual imposition. Through a plea deal the amended charges, which were pleaded to, are misdemeanors of the third-degree. The offenses were indicted as third-degree felonies as sexual conduct with a minor involving a 14-year-old female in August 2010. He must register as a Tier I sexual offender. The jail time was suspended and Good was placed on two years of community control sanctions including sexual offender treatment. (Kelsey)
