Toledo man sentenced again for working as unlicensed security guard

Toledo OH Aug 10 2017 A Toledo man who has been cited repeatedly for working as an armed security guard without a license was placed on community control for three years, and ordered to pay a $500 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.
Lucas County Common Pleas Judge James Bates imposed the sentence Tuesday on Franklin Harris, Jr., 47, of the 1600 block of Ironwood Avenue.
Harris had pleaded no contest June 27 and was found guilty of the fifth-degree felony for working at Brooks Bar & Grill, 4044 Monroe St., without a license despite two prior misdemeanors and one other felony conviction for the same offense.
Defense attorney Mary Bollinger told the court her client was a military veteran who believed he was on the payroll as an employee of Brooks Bar when he worked there as an armed guard, but he later learned he was not.

Harris faced prison time and could still receive it if he violates the terms and conditions of his sentence.
