YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A man who pleaded guilty to stealing a gun out of a car in Mill Creek Park was sentenced Wednesday.
Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Anthony D’Apolito sentenced 26-year-old Delord Green to three years in prison.
D’Apolito’s sentence went beyond a recommendation by attorneys to give Green a two-year sentence.
Green pleaded guilty August 9 to charges of grand theft of a firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated menacing.
Green was arrested for smashing the window of a car April 15 in Mill Creek Park and taking two credit cards and a 9mm Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol that was in the car.
The break-in came just weeks after Green was released from an 18-month prison sentence he served for a police chase.
