Ohio 18-year-old gets probation in theft of car at Urbana day care

URBANA — An Ohio man who admitted he stole a car in Urbana has been sentenced to two years of conditional discharge.

Treyton Wilson, 18, of Columbus was also ordered to spend 52 days in jail with credit for time served and perform 50 hours of public service.

He pleaded guilty before Judge Roger Webber on Thursday to possession of a stolen vehicle, admitting that about 7:45 a.m. July 17, he took a car from outside the Bradley Learning Center, 1311 E. Florida Ave., U, that a mother dropping off a child at the day care had left running.

Wilson was also ordered to make restitution of $178 to that woman, whose cellphone was in the car. A charge of theft related to that was dismissed in return for his plea.

Wilson was arrested later that same day in Longview, when a deputy saw him approach the stolen car.

Conditional discharge is a form of probation that does not require regular reporting to a probation officer.
