Man gets 5 years in prison
A Mahoning County judge sentenced a 20-year-old city man to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to charges of abduction, domestic violence and being a felon with a gun.
Edward Dobran III, of Forestview Drive, drew the sentence Thursday from Judge R. Scott Krichbaum of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.
The abduction and domestic-violence charges stem from an April 26 incident in which Dobran beat a pregnant woman and forced her into a vehicle against her will.
The gun charge stems from Dobran’s possession of a loaded .45-caliber gun May 21 after he was convicted in a separate felonious-assault case.
Judge Krichbaum made the five-year prison term consecutive to the two-year prison sentence Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of common pleas court had imposed earlier after Dobran’s conviction in the felonious-assault case.
Dobran will be on parole for three years after he leaves prison.
