Four defendants were sentenced and one pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor on Monday.
Cody Ratliff (pictured), 23, of Lakeview, was sentenced to 60 days in the Logan County Jail, five years community control, and ordered to pay a $250 fine, court costs, restitution, and attorney fees for obstructing justice.
Last December, Ratliff and Curtis King, 30, of Lakeview, were arrested shortly after assaulting and robbing an area teen of ten dollars at the Valero gas station, 12500 State Route 235 North, Lakeview.
King and Ratliff reportedly mugged Glen Burden, 17, of Lakeview.
Initially, the two men asked Burden for a ride.
After he declined, King and Ratliff allegedly assaulted the teen and took his wallet.
Burden’s mother contacted deputies while she was transporting him to the hospital. He suffered head and facial injuries.
Deputies along with the Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol searched the area.
Authorities saw a male run and enter a nearby van. Moments later, a second male entered the same van.
After the vehicle was stopped in the Holiday Shores area, King and Ratliff were taken into custody and charged with a felony count of aggravated robbery.
The Washington Township Police Department assisted with the traffic stop.
Some of the stolen items were recovered in the gas station parking lot.
In January, Ratliff was indicted for complicity to aggravated robbery (F1), complicity to felonious assault (F2), and complicity to tampering with evidence (F3).
Starting Thursday, a jury trial will consider charges of aggravated robbery, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence against King.
