A New London man who has allegedly tried to harm himself four times in recent months while incarcerated at the Huron County Jail has been charged with attempted aggravated robbery for an incident at a Toledo hospital.

Jamichael Randleman, 21, was transported to that Toledo hospital Sunday after he jumped from a bench in the booking area at the Huron County Jail and then complained of lower body injuries. (NOTE: To see video of the jump, watch the video on the player to the right of this story.)

While shackled to a hospital bed in Toledo, with only one free hand, Randleman attempted to obtain Deputy Lindsay Miles' firearm.

Sheriff Dane Howard said Miles had to use force to secure her weapon.

As a result, Randleman has been charged with aggravated robbery through the Lucas County Prosecutor's Office.

This charge is a first-degree felony.

Capt. Ted Patrick said Wednesday Randleman currently is housed at the Huron County Jail, but will soon be transferred to Lucas County.

Randleman has not tried again to injure himself.

"No, he is quite calm," Lt. Chris Stanfield said. "He's up in observation. He's fine."

Patrick said Miles is OK after the altercation.

"She had some bumps and bruises," he said.

Stanfield said the jail is no longer on lockdown.

The jail can hold up to 134 inmates. Wednesday's population was 90.

Neither Stanfield nor Patrick had an update on Concepcion Hernandez, 23, of Plymouth, who on Monday jumped about 20 feet from a security fence at the jail in a separate attempt to injure himself.

Hernandez was transferred to a Toledo hospital and has not returned.

Patrick said once Hernandez returns, he must serve his 15-day sentence on a domestic violence charge.




Hope Lucas county has a higher spot to jump from.

Sitting In The ...

He charged with aggravated robbery for attempting to steal the deputies gun? Um okay.


As the Ohio Law reads-
"2911.01 Aggravated robbery.

(A) No person, in attempting or committing a theft offense, as defined in section 2913.01 of the Revised Code, or in fleeing immediately after the attempt or offense, shall do any of the following:

(1) Have a deadly weapon on or about the offender’s person or under the offender’s control and either display the weapon, brandish it, indicate that the offender possesses it, or use it;

(2) Have a dangerous ordnance on or about the offender’s person or under the offender’s control;

(3) Inflict, or attempt to inflict, serious physical harm on another.

(B) No person, without privilege to do so, shall knowingly remove or attempt to remove a deadly weapon from the person of a law enforcement officer, or shall knowingly deprive or attempt to deprive a law enforcement officer of a deadly weapon, when both of the following apply:

(1) The law enforcement officer, at the time of the removal, attempted removal, deprivation, or attempted deprivation, is acting within the course and scope of the officer’s duties;

(2) The offender knows or has reasonable cause to know that the law enforcement officer is a law enforcement officer.
(C) Whoever violates this section is guilty of aggravated robbery, a felony of the first degree.
(D) As used in this section:

(1) “Deadly weapon” and “dangerous ordnance” have the same meanings as in section 2923.11 of the Revised Code.

(2) “Law enforcement officer” has the same meaning as in section 2901.01 of the Revised Code and also includes employees of the department of rehabilitation and correction who are authorized to carry weapons within the course and scope of their duties."

I think it's pretty clear which section of this makes the charge Randleman is facing legitimate.


The taking of money or goods in the possession of another, from his or her person or immediate presence, by force or intimidation.

good thing he is charged in Lucas county. Our prosecutor would let him plead to disorderly conduct.

Simple Enough II

Will the Sheriff of Heroin County do like the pervious Sheriff of Ottowa county did with his jumpers, I believe he took the 2 or 3 jumpers he had to court and sued them for the cost related to their actions and won if I recall correctly.


Sheriff taking inmates to court? LOL All he's worried about is getting more money for cruisers and trying to fire the county mechanic.


Great Googly Moogly- It's Grady from Sanford and Son.
