Sheffield 18-year-old given state time for gun charge; dozen others sentenced Friday

Among 14 defendants sentenced during Warren County court proceedings on Friday was an 18-year-old who will be going to state prison.

Brandon M. Morse, 18, of Sheffield, was sentenced to 24 to 48 months in a state correctional institution with credit for 136 days served — eligible for boot camp; a $1,000 fine; $625 in fees; and a mental health evaluation, for criminal solicitation — sale or transfer of firearms; and 12 to 24 months in prison to be served consecutively — eligible for boot camp; and a $1,000 fine, for corruption of minors.
