BUCYRUS — A sentencing hearing for Brian Brown, 58, was held in Crawford County Common Pleas Court on Monday.
A jury convicted the former Galion firefighter of felonious assault after a two-day trial on Feb. 6 and 7. Brown shot his former girlfriend inside his Galion home back in May of 2013, and then fled the scene. Police arrested him later in the same evening.
At the March 31 sentencing, Judge Russell Wiseman gave Brown nine years in prison (six years for the felonious assault charge and three years for the firearm specification). He was also ordered to pay $5,000 in court fines and costs.
