Sentenced For 2009 Pettisville Break-In

Donald L. Kendall III, 25, Archbold, has been sentenced to two years of community control, plus time served, in connection with the Nov. 19, 2009, break-in at Sunday’s Market, Pettisville.

He is the last of three men involved in the case to be sentenced.

The case began on the morning of Nov. 19, 2009, when a break-in was discovered at the Pettisville store. Missing were cigarettes, food items, lighters, cash and a gold ring. All told, the value of items taken was $1,500.

That night, at 7:28 pm, there was a single-car crash on Co. Rd. 22, at the curves south of Co. Rd. L. There were five passengers in the car: Kendall; Jerod Yedica, then 20, Archbold, who was driving the car; an 18-yearold Wauseon woman; plus two juvenile females, ages 15 and 16, from Wauseon and Archbold. All were injured in the crash.

Two of the crash victims fled the scene and had to be found before they could be taken to hospitals.

Yedica and Kendall were eventually charged in connection with the case. Also charged was a third man, Bobby Rodriguez, 19, rural Archbold, who was not in the crash.

None of the females were charged.


Kendall was sentenced Tuesday, Oct. 12. James E. Barber, Fulton County Common Pleas Court judge, reserved a 10-month prison sentence for Kendall.

He was ordered to pay the cost of his prosecution, make restitution of $3,376.25, and pay a $50 per month supervision fee.

Barber also ordered Kendall to serve 65 days at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, then gave him credit for the 65 days he has served.

He was ordered to seek and maintain employment, obtain his general education diploma, stay out of bars and taverns, abide by a 10 pm-6 am curfew, and have no contact with Rodriguez or Yedica.


Rodriguez was sentenced in the spring to two years of community control, including serving five days at CCNO.

He, too, was ordered to pay $3,376.25 in restitution, the cost of prosecution, ordered out of bars and taverns, not to consume or possess alcohol, and complete drug and alcohol treatment.

Yedica was sentenced in July to 17 months in prison after entering guilty pleas to three counts of vehicular assault and one count breaking and entering. Three counts of aggravated vehicular assault and the single count of abduction were dismissed.

He is currently being held at the North Central Correctional Institution, Marion, with an anticipated release date of Dec. 15, 2011.
