MANSFIELD — A 42-year-old city man was sentenced this afternoon to three years in prison for threatening a Richland County sheriff’s detective.
Byron Yambrisak, of Vennum Avenue, was convicted Friday of retaliation and intimidation after a two-day trial. Common Pleas Judge James DeWeese gave him a three-year prison sentence for retaliation and three years probation for intimidation.
Yambrisak drove by sheriff’s Detective Pat Smith in the parking lot at MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital and threatened her. Smith had arrested Yambrisak in a municipal court case that was later dismissed.
