A man accused of having a stolen credit card who was homeless at the time was one of multiple defendants who were arraigned and had their bonds set Tuesday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.
David S. Douglas Jr., 21, most recently of 28A Bouscay Ave., is charged with receiving stolen property in connection with a Sept. 2 incident.
"The defendant, at least at that time, had no place to live. He was living in an automobile," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said.
Huron County Public Defender David Longo said the suspected offense related to a $120 transaction involving a debit card. He said Douglas "was absolutely homeless" when he first moved to the area and if he were released from the Huron County Jail, he could live with friends or at the Ed Keating Center in Cleveland.
Douglas is subject to random drug screens as part of his $5,000 bond. His trial date is Dec. 10.
In another hearing Tuesday in Huron County Common Pleas Court, Jeffrey A. Guilliams, 41, of Akron, pleaded innocent to theft in connection with an April 21 incident. He goes to trial Nov. 21.
Leffler said the $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision set in Norwalk Municipal Court seemed reasonable, but he added he heard additional charges were coming. The prosecutor didn't elaborate. As a condition of bond, Guilliams is prohibited from being on the premises of any Walmart.
Guilliams, who is represented by Thomas Freeman, told Judge Jim Conway he has a prior felony conviction, but "not for theft." He is on probation for an unspecified Summit County conviction.
