A man accused of having a stolen credit card in his possession will be screened for possible intervention in lieu of being convicted.
Kenneth L. Ansel II, 18, of 16 E. Quail Hollow Drive, is charged with receiving stolen property in connection with a Oct. 20 incident. Authorities have said Ansel is an acquaintance of the victim, who had a debit card stolen from her purse.
"He made admissions to using the card at several (businesses) in Norwalk," Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said in October.
At Monday's hearing in Huron County Common Pleas Court, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said the state isn't opposed to Ansel being screened for intervention.
"He doesn't have any prior felonies," Huron County Public Defender David Longo said.
After the results of the screening, the court will schedule a new pretrial hearing and trial date.
Ansel earlier posted 10 percent of a $5,000 bond.
