Man Changes Plea in Wadsworth Receiving Stolen Property Case

Nathanael J. Stefanko, 30, of Silvercreek Road in Wadsworth, Ohio, appeared in Judge Kimbler's courtroom on Monday, September 20, 2010 and entered a plea of no contest to one charge of Receiving Stolen Property, a fourth degree felony. Judge Kimbler accepted the plea, found Mr. Stefanko guilty and ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Judge Kimbler will impose sentence on October 28, 2010 at 8:30 am. Judge Kimbler continued Mr. Stefanko's bond until imposition of sentence.

Mr. Stefanko is accused of receiving stolen jewelry that was valued between $5,000 and $100,000 on February 22, 2010. While the State is not expected to recommend a sentence when Mr. Stefanko is sentenced, it is anticipated that the victims of the crime will appear and make a victims' impact statement before Judge Kimbler imposes sentence.
