Local man sent to prison for jail disturbance

Monty JeanneretFive defendants were sentenced and four pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor earlier this week.

Monty Jeanneret, 21, of Russells Point, pleaded guilty to felonious assault and was sentenced to four years in prison.

In September, Jeanneret pleaded guilty to felonious assault.

The plea stems from an incident at the Logan County Jail last year.

In November, Jeanneret and Christopher Haynes, 20, of 10227 County Road 54, Lewistown, teamed up to throw hot water on fellow inmate JuJuan James, 19, at large.

A corrections officer noticed Jeanneret and Haynes acting suspiciously.

The officer said Jeanneret had something in his hand and both inmates were laughing.

Jeanneret then entered the shower area and threw a cup of hot water on James.

James suffered burns to his chest area. He was treated by the jail medical staff.

Jeanneret admitted to heating the water in the microwave and throwing it on James.

Jeanneret was charged with felonious assault.

He said he threw the water as a joke.

Haynes, who held the shower door open during the incident, was charged with complicity to felonious assault.

Korey GrandiKorey Grandi, 26, of Lewistown, was sentenced to twelve months in prison for forgery and theft.

In August, Grandi was indicted for aggravated burglary (F1), robbery (F2), and violating a protection order (F3).

The Logan County Sheriff's Office reports that Grandi assaulted Casey Nielsen, 25, on August 3rd around 12:30 p.m.

Nielsen was house sitting for Kelsey Thomas, 23, of 11153 State Route 366, Lakeview.

Deputies note that Grandi and Thomas are parents of a one-year-old daughter.

Nielsen was house sitting because Thomas was in jail.

Grandi went to the residence on 366 and threatened to harm Nielsen if he didn't open the door.

After Nielsen unlocked the door, Grandi slammed the door on his arm, struck him in the right eye, and spat in his face.

Grandi then took $40 and a house key from a table in the living room.

He threatened to kill Nielsen if he called police.

Deputies responded and noticed red marks and swelling on Nielsen's right eye along with red marks on his arm.

Authorities then went to Grandi's residence.

He became combative and said he wasn't going to jail because it was his daughter's birthday.

Deputies eventually took Grandi to the ground and handcuffed him.

A Washington Township officer assisted deputies.

Grandi was charged with assault, robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated menacing, resisting arrest, and issued a civil protection order violation.
