Charleston, who pleaded guilty Feb. 17, admitted he attempted to burglarize a home on Sept. 2 by breaking in the door, but left when the alarm sounded.
Charleston contested during the sentencing hearing that he only broke one door and not two. Allen County Deputy Prosecutor Carolyn Foley presented photos of the damaged doors, in which both were broken in half and the jamb was splintered. He was ordered to pay $7,981.55 in restitution to pay for the broken doors.
Charleston told Gull the last 15 years were a blur of prison sentences and crime — a result of a "drug problem that has made me make poor decisions."
Gull ordered a lifetime license suspension for Charleston, and credited him with four days of jail credit. She dismissed two misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief.
