New Middletown man gets 12-year prison term on burglary charges



Published: Fri, November 9, 2012 @ 2:05 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A man who pleaded guilty as charged to 13 burglary counts and one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

John A. Woods, 31, of New Middletown, drew the sentence from Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Woods was among eight defendants indicted in July in what authorities said was a large-scale burglary ring.

Martin P. Desmond, an assistant county prosecutor, said items stolen in the residential burglaries, such as jewelry and computers, were sold and the money used to buy heroin.

Woods pleaded guilty to burglaries in Petersburg, Poland, New Middletown, Struthers, Boardman and Girard.

The case was investigated by the Mahoning County Law Enforcement Task Force.
