Wayne man sentenced for robbery


A former Wayne resident currently in prison for robbery in another county has been sentenced in local court for same charge.

Eugene Minix II, 32, appeared on Jan. 26 via video in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

He is incarcerated in Ross Correctional in Chillicothe.

He had been indicted for robbery, a second-degree felony, after being accused of theft at Hampton Inn in August 2021 and attempting to inflict or threaten to conflict harm on a woman.

The victim was a hotel clerk, and due from stress from the incident, suffered a seizure the next day and lost her job, said Wood County Assistant Prosecutor Jim Hoppenjans.

Minix threatened her “and that is something that has stuck with her,” he said.

Minix pleaded guilty in November 2022.

Hoppenjans asked for a three-year prison term, to be served consecutive to the Franklin County sentence.

Kuhlman imposed a sentence of a minimum definite term of three years and a maximum indefinite term of 4.5 years in the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The imposed term shall be served consecutive to the Franklin County case in which he was found guilty of robbery.

He was indicted in September 2021 in Franklin County and pleaded guilty in February 2022. He was sentenced to three years in prison.
