The Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office says it will recommend a prison sentence for a former Vienna Township Police Officer and Mathews School Resource Officer convicted on seven criminal charges.

Thirty-two-year-old Michael Sheehy pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of breaking and entering, theft in office, possessing criminal tools, petty theft, and aggravated possession of drugs.  A charge of grand theft was dropped, according to Assistant Trumbull County Prosecutor Christopher Becker who told 21 News that his office would recommend prison time for Sheehy when he is sentenced in a few weeks.

The former Mathews Resource Officer resigned from his position with the Vienna Township Police Department in February following his indictment.

In addition to being accused of stealing guns and money from the Vienna Township Police Department, Sheehy was also charged with possession of fentanyl. 

According to a criminal complaint, Officer Sheehy allegedly stole two AR-15 rifles valued at $2,400 from the Vienna Township Police Department and used the department's vehicle lockout kit to break into a township police vehicle and steal $700.

Sheehy, who presented DARE programs in the school district, was hired as a resource officer for the district's three school buildings in September.
