A Norwalk teen who used a stolen credit card at two Norwalk businesses has been granted intervention in lieu of being convicted.
Kenneth L. Ansel II, 18, of 16 E. Quail Hollow Drive, pleaded guilty Monday to receiving stolen property. However, his conviction will remain pending while Ansel participates in the Huron County Common Pleas Court drug court program.
Probation officer Dexter "D.C." Chandler has the authority to send participants to 14 days in the Huron County Jail for violating the terms of the program.
On Oct. 20, Ansel possessed and used a credit card belonging to a female victim at the Walmart and Mickey Mart in Norwalk, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.
Ansel, who earlier posted 10 percent of a $5,000 bond, is an acquaintance of the victim.
He is on probation for three years. If Ansel successfully completes the drug court program, Judge Conway said he would terminate the defendant's supervision.
