Two cases were heard Thursday in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court — one by Judge Kevin Taylor, one by Judge Charles Steele:
Cai Evans, 20, Van Wert, appeared before Judge Taylor for a probation violation for refusing to go to treatment at WORTH Center.
He admitted the violation and was sentenced to his previously deferred sentence of 11 months in prison with credit for 54 days served.
Robert Ericson, 52, Van Wert, entered a plea of guilty before Judge Steele to a two-count Bill of Information charging him with aggravated assault, a felony of the third degree; and assault, a felony of the fourth degree.
The court ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for April 16.
Ericson was originally scheduled for a jury trial Monday on charges of felonious assault, a felony one; and assault, a felony four.
