WARREN — The Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office recommends Irving Russ of Warren, convicted of several crimes in connection with the accident that injured 10-year-old Annie Lee of Howland, receive the prison maximum sentence of 11 years.

Russ, 32, was found guilty in last November of failure to stop after an accident and two counts of tampering with evidence. He is due to be sentenced Feb. 1 in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

In a sentencing memorandum filed with the court, Ken Bailey and Chris Becker, assistant prosecutors, ask that Russ get maximum sentences of five years in prison on each of the tampering charges and one year on the charge of failure to stop after an accident.
