Scio man avoids prison - must pay back $3K+

A Scio man who was charged with 9 counts during a crime spree earlier this year has been spared a prison sentence. In Allegany Court Tuesday, Justin M. Learn, 20, of Snowball Hollow Road pleaded guilty to criminal possession of stolen property and burglary. Judge Terrance Parker sentenced Learn to five years probation, court fees and he was ordered to pay $3,483 in restitution. Prosecutors said Learn committed a string of burglaries to homes and garages. They said he also possessed heroin.
