POMEROY — A Rutland man has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison, while still facing other charges.
Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney James K. Stanley announced in a new release that Harley McDonald, 36, of Rutland, Ohio, was found to have violated the terms of his community control during a hearing last week.
McDonald had been on community control for a 2009 case in which he was convicted of Burglary, Breaking and Entering, two counts of Receiving Stolen Property, and Escape. McDonald already served three years in prison for the Escape conviction and 18 months in prison for one of the Receiving Stolen Property convictions.
After finding McDonald had violated the terms of his community control, Meigs County Court of Common Pleas Judge I. Carson Crow sentenced McDonald to five years in prison for the Burglary conviction, one year in prison for the Breaking and Entering conviction, and to eighteen months in prison for the remaining Receiving Stolen Property conviction, for a total prison sentence of seven years, six months.
McDonald was arrested in June as a suspect in a breaking and entering at Fox’s Pizza Den in Rutland and the theft of a vehicle in Pomeroy, as well as reportedly cutting off his ankle monitor. Charges have not been presented to a grand jury as of Monday on the cases.
According to previous Sentinel reports, McDonald was taken into custody on June 8 in Mason County, West Virginia.
