A Wauseon man is facing up to three years in prison, after his conviction in a Fulton County Common Pleas Court jury trial last week. 54 year old Marc McCabe of Wauseon was convicted of Illegal Cultivation of Marijuana. A jury of six men and six women deliberated about 90 minutes before returning their verdict of Guilty. A pre-sentence investigation was ordered by the court.
In another case, 30 year old Justin Roth of Archbold pled guilty to Attempted Illegal Manufacture of Drugs, in a case stemming from production of Methamphetamines.
Roth was placed on community control for three years; and ordered to complete the SEARCH program. His driver’s license was suspended for six months, and he was ordered to abide by a curfew.
And 27 year old Anthony Buonantuono (bwan-un-tono) of Wauseon pled guilty to theft of money from a cub scout pack. Buonantuono was placed on community control for two years, to make restitution of over $1,000, and to seek employment.
