Isaac Lerma, 21, Archbold, was sentenced to eight months in prison after pleading guilty to breaking and entering.

Lerma had entered a guilty plea to the charge.

In a press release, Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said the sentence against Lerma was handed down in Fulton County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday, July 12.

Lerma was originally arrested Feb. 15 by Archbold police on two charges of breaking and entering and a charge of theft, in connection with thefts from the Fairlawn Community Center reported on Monday, Jan. 23, Sunday, Feb. 5, and Tuesday, Feb. 7.

A total of $1,223.95 worth of property, mostly audiovideo equipment, was stolen.

Lerma was indicted by a Fulton County Grand Jury on March 20. The grand jury handed down two counts of breaking and entering, and one count of theft.

Haselman said in his press release that Lerma previously entered a guilty plea to a single count of breaking and entering.

“On or about Jan. 19, he knowingly trespassed in an unoccupied structure with the purpose to commit a theft offense,” Haselman said.

In addition to the eightmonth prison sentence, Lerma was ordered to pay the cost of his prosecution and $283.42 in restitution.
