Two Huron County men get prison for separate offenses

Two men received separate 11-month prison terms on unrelated fifth-degree felonies Thursday in Huron County Common Pleas Court. Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said Judge Earl McGimpsey based his sentences on the fact that Tony L. Owens Jr., 32, and Water E. Fulton Jr., 32, had "extensive criminal histories," multiple convictions and served time in prison. State law doesn't require judges to sentence suspects convicted of fifth-degree felonies to prison.
