Second suspect sentenced for Lordstown popcorn scam

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio - A Warren man will not go to jail for his part in a door to door popcorn sales scam.

A judge in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court placed 34-year-old Brian Billman on probation Monday, as he was sentenced on nine counts of theft from an elderly person.

Billman and 35-year-old Christina Hill  were charged after an investigation revealed that the two used Hill's 14-year-old son dressed in a Boy Scout uniform to sell the popcorn in Lordstown and surrounding areas.  The popcorn was never delivered.

Hill was found guilty of theft earlier and also placed on probation.
