LIMA — A 20-year-old Lima man who police say took part in an armed robbery at the Lima West Apartments earlier this year pleaded guilty on Monday for his role in the incident.
Joseph Swinehart appeared in Allen County Common Pleas Court for what was considered to be a pre-trial hearing. At that hearing Swinehart agreed to a deal from prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to a first-degree felony charge of aggravated burglary. In exchange for that plea, the state agreed to dismiss a second-degree felony count of robbery.
Swinehart will be sentenced Aug. 9.
