Homerville Man Receives $1000.00 Fine for Gun Charge

On Thursday, February 17, 2011, Matthew M. Herndon, 28, of Greenwich Road in Homerville, Ohio appeared in Judge Kimbler's courtroom on on count of Attempted Improper Handling of Firearms in a Motor Vehicle, a first degree misdemeanor. Originally Mr. Herndon was charged with a felony, but the State agreed to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor in exchange for a guilty plea to the misdemeanor.

Judge Kimbler imposed a 90 day jail sentence but suspended the jail sentence on the condition that Mr. Herndon pay a $1,000.00 fine; pay court costs; and forfeit the firearm. Judge Kimbler also placed him under the supervision of the Medina County Adult Probation Department for one year, but ordered the supervision to be terminated when Mr. Herndon pays off the fine and court costs.
