AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – An Austintown man about to begin a five-day jail sentence is in even more trouble.

James Kennedy, III, appeared in Austintown Court Wednesday facing felonious assault and abduction charges.

He was arrested Tuesday, just a day before he was to begin a sentence for failing to comply with a police officer.

Kennedy is now in jail on a $65,000 bond on his new charges.
