A Willard man pleaded guilty Monday to breaking into a Greenwich pole barn.

Timothy A. Brant, 33, of 324 Keefer St., will be sentenced April 16 for breaking and entering. His conviction is for a July 24 incident. Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said the owner had set up a camera system which caught Brant in the act.

"He appears to be on unsupervised probation at the time of the offense. ... The property was recovered," Huron County Public Defender David Longo said.

As part of Monday's plea deal, Woodruff said the state would agree to recommend some form of community control at the time of sentencing. Community control sanctions on the fifth-degree felony could include six to 12 months in the Huron County Jail.

Brant is in the middle of serving a Seneca County jail term for a child support case.

"He owes them 19 more days," Longo said Monday.
