A local armed robber was sentenced to prison this week in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Timothy J. Moore II, 29, formerly of 5 W. Water St., was sentenced Thursday to three years behind bars for robbery. His conviction and sentence, which includes restitution of $82, is for the March 24, 2017 incident at Circle K in Norwalk.

The Norwalk Police Department responded to the Cleveland Road business for the report of an armed robbery. Police have said Moore — whom detectives identified in late November — entered the store with a baseball bat and demanded money from a clerk. Once he received the money, he fled south and authorities were unable to locate him.

A Huron County grand jury indicted Moore in mid-December on two counts of robbery and one charge of aggravated robbery. He turned himself into the Huron County Jail shortly after the indictment.

Moore, during a Feb. 22 hearing, pleaded guilty to one count of robbery in exchange for prosecutors dismissing the other two felonies.

In other hearings:

• Emily M. Bussart, 26, of Cleveland, had her intervention in lieu of conviction revoked Wednesday for an undisclosed probation violation. Intervention means she wouldn’t have a conviction on her record if she successfully followed the terms of community control.

Bussart was sentenced Wednesday to 45 days in jail for one count each of permitting drug abuse and possession of heroin, both fifth-degree felonies. Judge Jim Conway also had her probation terminated unsuccessfully.

• Matthew R. Walski, 31, of Huron, was sentenced to 23 months in prison for menacing by stalking. He also had to forfeit the weapon.

During a Feb. 13 plea hearing, prosecutors dismissed two charges of menacing by stalking and one count of carrying a concealed weapon in exchange for Walksi’s guilty plea.

The Huron County Sheriff’s Office investigated the Aug. 13 incident involving a female victim on Peru Center Road outside of Monroeville. Walski had been in jail since his Aug. 21 arrest.

• Ashley N. Wood, 27, of Ashland, pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated possession of drugs with a forfeiture specification in exchange for the dismissal of one count of possession of heroin. She will be sentenced June 6.
