Timothy Resibois is set to spend more than a decade behind bars.

Resibois, 34, of Batavia, was sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony. His charge came with a maximum 11-year sentence, and Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler added another three years to the sentence due to Resibois being a repeat offender. He was also fined $20,000, according to court documents.

On April 8, Resibois, who had just been released from the Highland County Jail, allegedly robbed an elderly man at knifepoint in Sardinia. According to Brown County Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger, Resibois came away with more than $100 in cash, the victim’s vehicle and the victim’s cordless phone.

“The elderly victim stated the suspect [Resibois] came to the door stating he was out of gas and requested to use their phone,” Wenninger told The News Democrat last April. The victim reportedly allowed Resibois to use the phone and Resibois returned to his vehicle, a 1996 Honda Passport that had been reported stolen in Highland County.

“A few minutes later, the suspect returned to the residence requesting to use the phone for a second time,” Wenninger reported. “The victim entered the residence to obtain his cordless phone, unaware that the suspect had followed him inside. While inside the residence, the suspect pulled a knife and told the victim to get on the floor face down or he would ‘kill him.’”

Resibois was apprehended on April 9 after being noticed by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy. He was indicted on six counts of robbery, burglary, theft, grand theft and receiving stolen property on April 24, court papers state.

On June 22, he withdrew his not guilty plea and pleaded guilty to the single count of aggravated robbery and later that day he was sentenced by Gusweiler.

The other five counts in Resibois’ bill of indictment were dismissed for accepting the plea bargain. He earned credit for 74 days served in the Brown County Adult Detention Center.

Resibois was also sentenced to five years of mandatory post-release control.

In a separate case, Russell Bravard, 34, of Mt. Orab, was sentenced on June 18 to three years and 10 months in the Ohio Department of Corrections for one count of trafficking in heroin, within the vicinity of a juvenile, a fourth-degree felony, and one count of aggravated trafficking, within the vicinity of a juvenine, a third-degree felony.

According to court documents, Bravard was indicted on four counts of drug trafficking and then arraigned on April 9. On May 29, he withdrew his plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty to the two trafficking counts.

At the sentencing, the two other counts were dismissed. Gusweiler also advised Bravard of an optional three years of post-release control once Bravard completes his time in prison, the documents state.

Bravard has twice been sentenced to two-year prison stints in the last nine years, one in 2006 and another in 2011, both through the Brown County Court of Common Pleas.

In an unrelated case, Travis Mounce, 31, of Georgetown, was sentenced to 12 months in prison for one count of breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony.

On or about April 28, Mounce allegedly broke into a Georgetown home and stole items valued at more than $1,000. He was indicted on May 26 on three counts, breaking and entering, theft and receiving stolen property, and a day later he was arraigned in jail.

Mounce withdrew his not guilty plea and pleaded guilty to the sole count of breaking and entering. His other two counts were dismissed, court documents state.

Gusweiler advised Mounce of a period of three years of post-release control when he completes his time in prison.

Mounce has previously been convicted guilty in Brown County on three other occasions, mainly involving theft and burglary, according to court papers.
