'Menace to society' guilty on all charges

Jury takes only about an hour to decide verdict in drug-related home invasion.

It took a jury a little more than an hour Thursday to convict Jeremy M. Sax of all charges against him.

Jurors began deliberating at 1:08 p.m. Thursday and returned with guilty verdicts at 2:15 p.m. The trial began Tuesday.

Sax, 34, of Norwalk, was charged with robbery, aggravated burglary and tampering with evidence in connection with a March 1 drug-related incident.

Sax, sporting tattoos on his back, neck and shaved head, wore a salmon-colored shirt in court and covered his mouth with his hand immediately before and after Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway read the verdicts. He looked down, but showed no other emotion. He spoke to his attorney, Sarah Nation, after hearing the verdicts.

Sax's half sister, Treva Campbell, 30, of 38 Newton St., has pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence. Her sentencing date is Oct. 9. Norwalk resident Larry Thornsberry, 36, Campbell's boyfriend, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of burglary and is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 30 for one count each of burglary and attempted tampering with evidence.

On March 1, Campbell drove Sax and Thornsberry to the victim's home, where Thornsberry grabbed the man from behind in a choke-hold and Sax repeatedly hit him with a black handgun, prosecutors and the victim have said. Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler has said witnesses placed Campbell at the crime scene and she was waiting in the car before she decided to go inside the house to see what was taking so long.

After the assault, Campbell drove her accomplices away from the scene and stopped the vehicle so Sax could throw out the weapon. On March 8, a Huron County Sheriff's Office search team found an airsoft pistol in water under a Jennings Road bridge adjacent to the Fitchville Conservation Club.

The victim went to Fisher-Titus Medical Center to have staples put in his head.

Investigators have determined the situation began to develop when Sax's then-girlfriend -- 23-year-old Brittany N. Fernekees of New London -- went to her ex-boyfriend's home to retrieve her laptop computer. Charges against her were dismissed later.

Sax, who is being represented by Sarah Nation, had until Friday to accept a plea deal.

Nation declined to comment following the verdict.

"We're extremely satisfied with the result," Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said. "We strongly believe that (Sax) is a menace to society."

Querin credited Detective Eric Bardar, Monroeville Police Officer Troy Kimball and Sheriff Dane Howard with putting in long hours into the investigation and finding the firearm in the creek.

Leffler said he was satisfied with the verdict and credited police for doing good work.

He said the state initially had some difficulties with the case, since the victim was another drug dealer. Leffler said he couldn't get him to testify.

"I think he was laying low," the prosecutor said.

I suppose having "6 time loser" tatted on the back of your head really pays off in the long run... maybe when he gets back to where he belongs they can just scribble out the 6 and put a 7 under it

JACKEL

Looks like a Nazi Skinhead !I know there are a lot of people shave their heads today but he looks the part !

One thing for sure and two for certain this isn't Treva. This happens to be someone that watched the trial and has been at every court hearing. If you had any common sense you would learn more of the facts before sounding ignorant. Thorns berry and Campbell neither one have been sentenced yet and in the trial it came out that they neither one got a deal from prosecution. Do you think you can check your facts in the court reports since you have nothing better to do. Sax may get what he deserves but he was the dumb one that took it to trial

BlackWidow

You're probably the barn yard animal that just changed her name. Who else would waste their time going to these worthless court hearings and defending all these losers.

Scranton Tibbs

Agreed Black Widow. UrineAims: Go find something more productive to do, like vacuuming your trailer and picking up the dirty needles.

Oh noes! I've angered Team Junkie. It's 2 on 1. Please don't beat be with a pellet gun stuffed inside a dirty sock.

Scranton Tibbs

I imagine UrineAims and suckskris sitting in the trailer as we speak. Fighting over the computer, the warm Busch Light and last pack of Misty 120's. Taking advantage of gov't subsidized internet access on their "new from Craigslist previously stolen laptop". "Hurra up and log the f off. It's muh turn now! Go warm up some Sketti-o's for all the kids, and gets em a Mt. Dew while your at it. I gotsta get on this Scranton fool for dissin tha family. Whens we is done, we'll go visit Jeremy at the jailhouse. Take him a couple of colorin books and some new crayons. He is bored."

Wildbunch3

Ahhahahahahahaha.....I seriously just laughed so hard at this!!! You're my hero :)
I think we need to meet up at Treva's next court date. We can sit there and bark and quack at each other. Just to let her know who we are, and to watch her get cuffed and sent to jail where she belongs!!!

Scranton Tibbs

Oh that would be fun. I'll wear a T shirt that says QUACK QUACK.

Wildbunch3

I'll be wearing the "bark bark" shirt :)

BlackWidow

Be careful she may lunge at you with one of her sharpened needles.

BlackWidow

I have never laughed so hard until reading this because I read it with the hillbilly voice you know they're talking in lmao.

Wow1

I just LOL'd. Too funny!

Firelandsobserver

"covered his hand with his mouth" ?

WASP71

Trash....simply trash..like all the other junkies...tired of all of them..let them all waste away and die...

BlackWidow

Wasp it would be more interesting to lock them all in the same place and throw one needle in there and watch them beat each other for it. Now that would be an awesome reality show.

WASP71

Hmmm..how about if you lock them all together, add 1 empty syringe and then add one dose of heroin so they have to fight not only for the dope but for the needle,too!! Now THAT would be entertainment..Then give the rest a loaded handgun so they would shoot the others over the dope then all would be out of our misery!!! WHAT A GREAT PLAN!!!!

BlackWidow

I say skip the gun but having the dope on one side of the room and the needle on the other would be great watching them all beat each other for it lol.

AND why did saxkris delete all her posts. Did she realize we were all right or is she worried porky is gonna get screwed at court and she's trying to save one of her junky kids.

Wow1

If all of you set this "Huron county reality show" up make sure you advertise. I heard they canceled Honey Boo Boo. I'm going to need some new entertainment in my life! Bahaha

so sick of stup...

I dont understand what makes these people think that they can get away with doing something like this..do they seriously think they wont get caught or are they just plain stupid...no i know....its your brain on drugs...well like i say junkies and dealers will learn one way or the other...death or prison...another bites the dust...

ladydye_5

Why does she come back a day later and then remove all her comments? Is she ashamed? Or is it on the advice of her attorney???? LMAO!
