A Norwalk teenager who admitted to violating his probation by consuming alcohol underage was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

After Kenneth L. Ansel II, 19, of 16 E. Quail Hollow Drive, finishes his jail term, he will remain on probation and the intervention program.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway said he would authorize probation officer Dexter Chandler to pursue transferring the defendant's supervision to Mississippi, where Ansel plans to live with his mother.

Before Monday's hearing, Chandler warned the defendant if he gets in trouble in Mississippi, he would be arrested again.

Ansel admitted to several probation violations Monday.

He entered the Norwalk Walmart on May 28 and left without paying for three cases of Bud Light and later was charged with underage consumption. Since April 10, he disobeyed "verbal sanctions" while on house arrest and failed to make two office visits in April and May.

Ansel has been on probation since March 18 on a charge of receiving stolen property. On Oct. 20, he possessed and used a credit card belonging to a female acquaintance at the Walmart and Mickey Mart in Norwalk, authorities said.

"I'm very remorseful for what I did," Ansel told the judge Monday.
