A Norwalk man has been convicted of endangering children.

Nathan R. Olvera, 36, most recently of 1040 Old State Road, pleaded guilty Monday to two felony counts of endangering children and one charge of intimidation, a third-degree felony. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count each of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, and assault, a first-degree misdemeanor.

The Huron County Sheriff’s Office investigated the endangering children incident on Sept. 15. Also according to court records, a Seneca County prosecutor is handling the case in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Olvera has posted a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to be sentenced April 18. 

In a separate case, Joseph Rose, 24, most recently of 19 Grand Ave., Apt. 7, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count each of grand theft of a motor vehicle and trafficking in marijuana plus two charges of vandalism. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed a third count of vandalism and one charge each of possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana-related drug paraphernalia.

Rose remains out on a $10,000 bond with a 10-percent provision. According to court records, he was placed on electronically-monitored house arrest after his Jan. 8 arraignment and Judge Jim Conway prohibited him from having any association with the victims and from being on their property. Rose also must submit to random drug screens.

He will be sentenced April 25.
