Brunswick Woman Avoids Prison When Grandmother Agrees to Accept Restitution

On Thursday, February 17, 2011, Danielle L. Telmanik of Valley Forge Drive in Brunswick, Ohio, appeared in Judge Kimbler's courtroom to be sentenced on one count of Theft from the Elderly, a fourth degree felony. Her grandmother was the victim from whom Ms. Telmanik stole several thousand dollars worth of personal belongings to get money to buy drugs.

At the hearing Judge Kimbler asked the Victim's Advocate from the Medina County Prosecutor's Office to ask Ms. Telmanik's grandmother if she wanted him to order restitution. The Advocate conferred with the grandmother and then reported that the grandmother wanted restitution.

After receiving that information, Judge Kimbler imposed the following community control sanctions: Supervision by the Medina County Adult Probation Department for three years; and restitution in the amount of $8500.00 to be paid in monthly installments of $400.00, with the first installment being due on the last day of March and then each monthly installment due of the last day of the month thereafter.
Judge Kimbler informed Ms. Telmanik that if she didn't comply with the restitution order, she was facing 18 months in prison.

In order to make sure that Ms. Telmanik can comply with his order, Judge Kimbler waived all court costs and supervision fees. Judge Kimbler imposed the restitution order after ascertaining that Ms. Telmanik is employed and earns enough money to comply with the order.
