Sons of a Youngstown cop sentenced to prison


YOUNGSTOWN — Two sons of a city police officer shed tears during apologies to their victims before being sentenced to prison for attempted aggravated burglary and carrying a concealed weapon.

Bryandon M. Rutland, 19, and Antwaine H. Rutland, 22, both of Volney Road, appeared today before Judge Maureen Sweeney, Mahoning County Common Pleas Court for sentencing on the charges.

The brothers agreed to plead to the charges, and prosecutors would allow the judge to determine sentencing with no recommendation from their office.

Judge Sweeney sentenced both men to four years in prison on the attempted aggravated burglary charge and imposed five years’ probation after the prison time for the carrying a concealed weapon charge. The brothers also must make restitution of $553 to the victim of the attempted burglary.
