City man gets 10 years in prison for punching police officer



Published: Wed, September 12, 2012 @ 3:23 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The city man convicted of knocking a female Youngstown police officer down with a blow to the face will spend the next 10 years in prison.

Shawn Green, 36, of East Florida Ave., was convicted in July of assaulting Officer Bridget Quinn at a bar on South Avenue earlier this year. A jury of five men and seven women spent about two hours deliberating before finding Green guilty of felonious assault, assault, cocaine possession and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor.

Green appeared today before Judge James Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court for sentencing.

Jennifer McLaughlin, an assistant county prosecutor, recommended the 10-year sentence for Green, citing his past criminal record and what she described as a total lack of respect for law enforcement. Green has been arrested in the past for carrying concealed weapons and drug possession.

"So... let me get this straight. The Mahoning County court sentenced someone to 10 years for punching an officer. Is this the same court system that routinely hands down 6 year plea bargains when someone MURDERS another person? What a joke."

Are you for real?? EVERY case is different. You can't ever compare 2 cases whatsoever. The judges, lawyers, prosecutors, juries, plea bargains, past history, and on and on and on and on, factor into each individual case and crime. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out. smh at such stupidity in society today.

"".....routinely hands down 6 year plea bargains when someone MURDERS another person?""

Routinely?? Smoke some more of what your smoking. Again such stupidity in society today.....

Do YOU want more?

I'm not saying the cases are the same, I'm saying the courts are a joke you idiot.
--------------------------------------------
Do you have any more with a 6 year sentence? I only see that one. And that is the one case the cockroach got 6 years which is totally uncalled for, but don't go saying it's routine for murderers to get 6 years in Youngstown just because one filthy slime did.
And the Courts are joke all over this great country. That's been known for decades. smh

"You think 10, 13, and 6 years are sufficient for murder?"

No, if it was up to me, and it's a clear cut case, I say the death penatly and no waiting 15+ years.

"No wonder this area is a cesspool."

Oh, and Youngstown is the only city with a useless court. You must not get around much. It's in every city in the great ole U.S of A.
