Fayette police report 2011.07.07

Written by David Green.

A prisoner housed in a federal facility in Indiana was ordered by a Fulton County judge to pay restitution for crimes committed in Fayette.

Fayette police chief Jason Simon and one officer travel by private airplane to Terre Haute, Ind., to bring a prisoner to Fulton County for sentencing. The man pled guilty to selling bad meat to some elderly Fayette residents.

He was sentenced to serve 90 days in prison, but this will be served concurrently with a federal prison sentence issued for another crime.

Chief Simon told village council members June 22 that, as of that day, restitution costs stand at $533.

The cost of bringing the prisoner to Indiana and later returning him was $497.

AUXILIARY—Council voted to sponsor Alanna Langenderfer of Wauseon for her studies at the police academy. Sponsorship comes at no cost to the village, but it does help the cadet with placement at the academy.

Langenderfer will buy her own Fayette police uniform.
