Two Robinson men were sentenced to prison terms in circuit court
A pair of Robinson men were recently sentenced to prison term in Crawford County Circuit Court.

Jeramie P. Ault, 37, rural Robinson, was charged with theft, assault and criminal damage to property. He pleaded guilty to the theft charge and the other two charges were dropped. He was sentenced to three years in prison and $5,707.50 in restitution, fines and court costs.

Testimony from the victim said Ault was sawing steel off sections of a 1906 bridge that was stored at the property. It was constructed out of riveted sections and was originally built in the township.

The bridge was damaged in an accident, with part of it being forced into a nearby creek. The township made an agreement with the victim to remove and keep the bridge at no cost to the community.

The victim said he went to the site after a report of activity there. He confronted Ault and Joseph W. Peterson. Ault allegedly threatened the victim.

Peterson pleaded guilty to a theft charge previously and was sentenced to 24 months of probation, 100 hours of public service and restitution, fines and court costs.

The victim said he had intended to install it as a decorative element on his property.

In an unrelated matter, a man has been sentenced to prison after trying to defraud a drug test with a glue bottle full of urine, according to police reports.

Keith A. Christy, 22, Robinson, was arrested on May 21 after allegedly trying to use the bottle to simulate urination into the specimen cup during a probation drug test.

He was sentenced to two years in prison and $352 in fines and court costs.

He was on two years of probation for a April 12, 2013, conviction for burglary.
