Judge Sentences Grinch
SAINT BERNARD (WKRC) -- A local judge finds himself handing down punishment to an admitted Grinch.
27 year old Jesse Simpson faced sentencing Monday for stealing 27,000 dollars worth of toys from Toys For Tots.
Last month the Covington man entered a guilty plea to three counts of breaking and entering.
Investigators say Simpson and Nathan Rose broke into a Toys For Tots storage facility in Saint Bernard on Christmas Eve 2011.
The toys were recovered about a week later at a home on Russell Street in Covington. Both sides argued over whether Simpson should serve time.
The judge gave Simpson five years probation and if he violates that probation he could go to prison for three ears.
He also fined Simpson 1,000 dollars and ordered him to get his GED within one year so he could find a job.
