BUCYRUS — A Galion teen was sentenced to 18 months in prison in Crawford County Common Pleas Court this week after failing a drug test while on probation.

Taylor A. Young, 19, 632 Crew Ave., was participating in the court’s ISAT (Intensive Supervision and Treatment Program) program when her probation officer said she failed a drug screen by testing positive for cocaine. Young was originally convicted of possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, and several misdemeanors in December.

Another Galion resident was also sentenced to time in prison on drug-related charges.

Carl McCrea, 43, 430 Libby Lane, was sentenced to seven months in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. McCrea must also pay a $1,250 fine and had his driver’s license suspended for six months.

A Bucyrus teen was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in a home invasion and assault at a residence on Harris Avenue in Bucyrus.

Aaron Mitchell, 18, Bucyrus, admitted to breaking into the residence, assaulting a person who lived in the home and stealing money and property. Judge Sean Leuthold also ordered Mitchell to pay a $9,000 fine along with restitution to the victim in the case in an amount to yet be determined. Mitchell also faces mandatory post-release control upon his release from prison.

Robert C. Byrnes, 30, Bucyrus, was placed on probation two years ago on a breaking and entering conviction, but is now heading to prison after violating the terms of his community control. Byrnes was sentenced to seven months in prison after he committed a new crime in November in Marion. He was convicted of complicity to commit theft in Marion County on Nov. 30.
