MARION, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio county judge and his wife have both been sentenced to two-year prison terms on convictions of leaving the scene of a crash that injured a 19-year-old man last year.
Jason Warner, who serves as a Marion County Common Pleas judge, and Julia Warner were convicted last month of complicity to leaving the scene of an accident, a fourth-degree felony, and complicity to evidence-tampering, a third-degree felony.
Julia Warner, the driver, was also convicted of misdemeanor negligent assault.
The charges stemmed from a crash in Marion last June.
Both defendants gave apologetic statements to the court.
Defense attorneys vowed to appeal.
