A Huron County grand jury indicted Milan teenager Friday in connection with an altercation with Norwalk employees after attempting to steal a bottle of alcohol last month.

Several Whittlesey Avenue business employees stopped Justin D. Owens, 19, of 13805 Riley Road, when he left the store Feb. 15 with a bottle of Jack Daniels, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

Owens is accused of struggling with, kicking and pushing the workers before fleeing to a nearby park.

Norwalk police officers arrested Owens, who remains in the Huron County Jail, “within a matter of minutes,” Woodruff said. The defendant is charged with robbery.

Others indicted include:

*** David A. Dalton Jr., 38, of 317 Austin Drive, Apt. 4, Willard, on possession of heroin in connection with a Dec. 18 incident. Woodruff said Dalton was indicted last month on the same charge and circumstance, but the new indictment properly lists the amount of the drug, which an investigator has said was 1.15 grams.

*** Nicholas D. Griffith, 27, of 24 W. Broadway St., Plymouth, on four counts of forgery in connection with respective incidents on Jan. 30, Feb. 1, Feb. 11, and between Jan. 24 through Feb. 11. He also was charged with theft stemming from an incident between Jan. 1 and Feb. 11.

*** Sherry L. Johnston, 39, of 44 Spring St., Willard, on illegal processing of drug documents in connection with a Jan. 17 incident.

*** Robert D. Louder II, 39, of 11 Baker St., on one count of grand theft and two counts each of falsification in connection with incidents from March 1 through Sept. 30.

*** Marcus C. Sheldon, 37, of 24 W. Emerald St., Willard, on possession of cocaine in connection with a Feb. 7 traffic stop at the intersection of Grove Avenue and St. Mary’s Street. Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Todd Temple earlier estimated that he and Officer Seth Fry found about a gram of cocaine in the defendant’s possession. At the time of the stop, Sheldon also was charged with driving with a suspended license.

*** Charles E. Wireman, 25, of 40 W. Main St., Greenwich, on unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in connection with an Oct. 18 incident.

“He had consensual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl down in Willard,” Woodruff said.

"I believe the extra 15 years (of) registration is unconstitutional," said Matthew D. Sherman, who represented himself in court. "An appeal will be filed."

Sherman, 28, of 34 Orchard St., Greenwich, was sentenced Oct. 7, 1998 to two years of probation and 30 days in the Huron County Jail for attempted corruption of a minor. He also was fined $250.

Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said Sherman had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

"There is a new allegation he's involved with another 14-year-old girl," he said.

Since the offense, Sherman said he had an undisclosed "minor problem" and obtained his GED at a halfway house after serving six months in a state prison. He told the court he wanted to put the sex crime behind him.

Sherman currently is serving a 150-day jail sentence for a probation violation out of Norwalk Municipal Court. He turned himself in to the sheriff's office on a related warrant Wednesday.
