One sentenced, two plead guilty in Common Pleas Court

One defendant was sentenced and two pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor earlier this week.

Billy Garland, 58, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to thirty days in the Logan County Jail, five years community control, and ordered to pay attorney fees, court costs, and restitution for grand theft.

Jennifer Kindle (pictured), 38, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to theft from the elderly.

On June 7th, Kindle was arrested on multiple felony charges after police solved a theft.

Kindle reportedly recovered a fellow customer's wallet at the former Rich Gas Station, 721 North Main Street, on May 3rd and then made $1,200 in unauthorized transactions on the victim's debit card and Social Security benefits card.

Kent Tennant, 68, of Bellefontaine, reported the theft on May 5th.

The gas station's video surveillance showed Kindle picking up the wallet and hiding it in the small of her back under a shirt.

Kindle was taken into custody at her home. She was charged with felony theft and felony identity fraud, then lodged in the Logan County Jail.

A presentence investigation was ordered and sentencing is scheduled for January 7th.

Monty Jeanneret, 20, of Russells Point, pleaded guilty to a community control violation, two counts of theft of a motor vehicle, and single counts of burglary and obstruction of justice.

A presentence investigation was ordered and sentencing is scheduled for December 17th.
