Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio - One of two people involved with a stolen tractor that destroyed yards and damaged properties in Niles, has been sentenced.

Michael Butler, 30, was sentenced to 60 days in the Trumbull County jail after pleading guilty to vandalism.

Butler, along with 20-year-old Joesph Barrickman, II, stole a tractor last year and used it to destroy yards and property along Wade Avenue, including property owned by Niles City Schools.

In addition to jail time, Butler will be placed on five years community control and must pay $3,500 in restitutions for the damage caused, including $500 to the Niles Board of Education.

Barrickman also pleaded guilty last month. His sentencing has not been scheduled yet.
