Warren teen gets jail time, ordered to pay $56,289 restitution for ‘Dragon Wagon’ fire

Staff report


Ricky A. Mohn, 19, of Lancer Court Northwest is sentenced to six months in the Trumbull County jail and ordered to make $56,289 restitution for being among four teens who damaged the football stadium at Niles McKinley High School.

Mohn and three juveniles were charged with burning down the “Dragon Wagon,” a building from which volunteers sold Red Dragon merchandise at the school football stadium; and vandalizing a concession stand.

Mohn pleaded guilty earlier to arson and breaking and entering in the August incidents.

Judge Ronald Rice of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court acknowledged in court that Mohn has three co-defendants but said Mohn is responsible for paying the entire amount.

Among the conditions of Mohn’s five-year probation is that he not enter Niles schools property.

Police said Mohn and boys 17, 16 and 15 broke into a building at Niles Middle School on Brown Street late Aug. 18, then damaged the concession stand and “Dragon Wagon” early Aug. 19.

The juvenile cases were all handled in the county juvenile court, where Mohn was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
