LISBON — An East Palestine man who crashed a stolen car and spit at two Columbiana police officers was ordered to prison for 15 months.
Patrick Paul Seidner, 24, of 540 E. Martin St., appeared for sentencing Friday in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court for receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony, and two counts of harassment with a bodily substance, a fifth-degree felony.
Judge C. Ashley Pike issued terms of 15 months for the receiving charge and 12 months each for the harassment charges, but ordered them all served at the same time. He gave Seidner credit for 77 days already served in the county jail.
