A teenager from Marion has pled guilty to impersonating a peace officer. The Courier reports that 18-year-old Izaha Akins pled guilty this morning in Wyandot County Common Pleas Court. Akins impersonated Senator David Burke (R-Marysville) during a visit to Mohawk High School back in December. Akins admitted to the felony charge, which carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail and a fine of $10,000.
Judge Kathleen Aubry sentenced Akins to three years community control and a restitution fee of $138.35 to a car dealership Akins fooled to provide him with a car and driver. He is also to have no contact with Mohawk schools or Burke. Akins has been in jail for violating his bond to take a trip to Washington DC that was not court-approved. His lawyer said that Akins will remain in Crawford County Jail until his sentencing hearing which hasn’t been set yet.
Another charge of telecommunications fraud was dismissed during the hearing.
