A Willard man has received six months short of the maximum prison sentence for endangering children.

Christopher O. Tuttle, 35, pleaded guilty to the third-degree felony in mid-Februrary. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of aggravated trafficking in heroin.

On Thursday, Tuttle, was sentenced to 30 months in prison. The Willard Police Department, which handled the case, booked him into the Huron County Jail on Nov. 4.

Tuttle was eligible for a prison sentence because of a prior felony conviction — two counts of burglary from 2003.

In other recent hearings in Huron County Common Pleas Court:

• Shawn T. Cook, 40, of Toledo, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated possession of methamphetamine. He then was sentenced to a 90-day discretionary jail sentence. That means Cook’s probation officer can impose part or all of the term without a hearing during his three years of probation.

• Tyzhaun K. Galindo, 22, of Elyria, pleaded guilty Monday to one count each of trafficking in drugs, aggravated trafficking in drugs and intimidation. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed two counts of trafficking in drugs. Galindo then was sentenced to 24 months in prison.

• Reynaldo M. Garcia, 20, of 108 W. Pearl St., Willard, pleaded guilty Monday to one count each of inducing panic and failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of inducing panic, a third-degree felony, two counts of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and one count of operating a motor vehicle or motorcycle without a valid license. Willard police handled the Oct. 11 incident. Garcia, who has been in jail since Feb. 27, will be sentenced May 9.
