Salineville man pleads guilty to burglary

LISBON — A Salineville man who broke into another person’s home in January of 2018 pleaded guilty on Wednesday to burglary.

James D. Spencer, 27, state Route 164, Salineville, forced his way into the home of Dominic Gibson on Jan. 7, 2018, taking a firearm and a jar of change.

While the prosecutor’s office is requesting a nine month prison term, Spencer’s defense attorney Jennifer Gorby is asking for community control. An evaluation for the Eastern Ohio Correction Center has been requested.

As part of the plea agreement, Spencer has agreed to make restitution for the items taken from Gibson’s home and to cooperate fully in matters relating to an assault on Josh Peterson at the county jail if he is called upon to do so.

Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 2. The maximum possible sentence for the burglary charge Spencer faced is three years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The nine-month term is the minimum prison sentence.
