Convicted forger, check thief sentenced to prison

A Sandusky woman received nearly two years in prison Tuesday for three felonies.

Dawn (Warren) M. Sullivan, 36, was sentenced Tuesday to 22 months behind bars for two counts of forgery and one charge of theft of checks. During a plea hearing in September, prosecutors agreed to dismiss one count of forgery and two charges of theft of checks.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway, during Tuesday’s sentencing hearing, ordered Sullivan to pay $876.09 in restitution to the victims.

The Norwalk Police Department transported Sullivan to the Huron County Jail on June 28. Court records indicate police investigated the thefts and forgeries in connection with a May 13 incident. Sullivan has been in jail since her arrest.

This was not her first prison sentence.

In early February 2011, Sullivan was sentenced to 11 months in prison for theft of checks and a related, four-count probation violation. Court records also indicate she had pleaded guilty to a bill of information, a court document which she signed which allowed her to be convicted and forgo having the case go through the grand jury process.

Sullivan, starting in early October 2010, had been on three years of probation for one count of breaking and entering.
