Eight-year jail sentences given to two men who robbed Perrysburg Speedway


Joseph M. Strawinski III, 23, of Toledo, was sentenced to eight years in prison on June 8 for his
involvement in a string of robberies along with William B. Burnside, 30, also of Toledo. Strawinski
changed his plea and pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, a second-degree felony.
Judge Reeve Kelsey also ordered him to pay $302 in restitution to a Speedway gas station on U.S. 20 near
I-75 in Perrysburg.
Both men were charged in relation to the robbery of that gas station in January. Kelsey ordered the
sentence be served concurrently with any other sentences Strawinski may be serving.
Police reports indicate Burnside was driving the getaway car used during the robbery of the Perrysburg
Speedway. Strawinski was the armed suspect who entered the business, threatened and assaulted the female
clerk, then fled with money from the cash register.
Burnside similarly received an eight-year sentence from Kelsey.
In addition to Kelsey, Wood County Common Pleas Court judges Alan Mayberry and Robert Pollex have issued
the following prison sentences:
