A former Huron County sheriff's detective accused of stealing between $1,000 and $20,000 from the evidence room agreed to a plea bargain with prosecutors Friday afternoon, thus avoiding a trial that would have started Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court. Matthew S. Spencer, 34, most recently of 420 High St., Willard, entered an "Alford plea' to several felonies. In this plea, the defendant does not admit the act and asserts innocence, but admits that sufficient evidence exists with which the prosecution could likely convince a judge or jury to find the defendant guilty.
