Mansfielder sentenced to three years – ????

MANSFIELD — Authorities asked a judge Monday to send a message to a city man who threatened a sheriff’s detective.

Common Pleas Judge James DeWeese followed by sentencing Byron Yambrisak, 42, of Vennum Avenue, to three years in prison for retaliation. DeWeese gave Yambrisak three years probation on a second charge of intimidation.

Yambrisak was convicted on both counts Friday after a two-day trial. The jury deliberated less than two hours.

On July 15, Yambrisak drove past 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.

“That is not acceptable,” DeWeese said. “You threatened a sheriff’s (detective) for doing her job.”

Yambrisak used racial slurs in threatening Smith.

“You show absolutely no remorse for this offense,” DeWeese said. “A person without remorse is not about to change their behavior. That’s what makes you more dangerous.”

Yambrisak briefly addressed the court, saying he was sorry for the incident. Attorneys debated if Yambrisak should go to prison.

“The defendant is entitled to a term of probation,” defense attorney Paul Cushion said. “Verbiage isn’t sufficient to send someone to prison.”

Assistant Prosecutor Chris Tunnell lobbied for the maximum sentence, which would have been six years. He said Yambrisak had a previous conviction for intimidation in Indiana, plus a pending violation of a civil protection order involving a prostitute he had dated.

“That woman is afraid of this defendant,” Tunnell said.

According to Tunnell, Smith, who was present but did not address the court, had “deep concern” about Yambrisak.

“He has a history of harassing conduct,” the assistant prosecutor said. “Most troubling to the state is the victim is a police officer. If this defendant threatens a police officer, what won’t he do?”

Sheriff Steve Sheldon spoke on Smith’s behalf. He said his employees need to be able to do their jobs without fear of threats.

“Send a message to the citizens that these reprisals will not be tolerated,” Sheldon told DeWeese.

After the sentencing, Cushion expressed concern about his client’s safety at the county jail because of the nature of his offense.

Sheldon assured the court Yambrisak would be fine, and asked that he be transferred from the jail as quickly as possible.

  6. buckeyesyd says:

    Can you name a few,I only know of one.

    On the other hand I know plenty of public workers who hide behind MANY aliases which I have shared here!. Try doing a search on John Mayer on “tell it like it is” and you will find more than you can bargain for. If the Fed, State, County of Richland, and City of Mansfield looked into these they would find MOST of their corrupt punks who will slander and defamate behind a keyboard and not come to Mansfielders Perspective group on facebook because they will be exposed or refuted into the ground.

    Peace out LOL! – YOU know where I work, right?. Don’t be another pusillanimous, USE YOUR REAL NAME if you want credibility here!

  7. buckeyesyd says:

    Another made up account the Attorney’s involved in this case should look into –!/penelope.pumpernickel?sk=wall

    I believe as Byron did, he was getting setup by folks who WILL NOT share who they are!. Not because they are afraid of retibution from Byron, but because they are liars and have NO CREDIBILITY!. I am willing to bet, if they look into these peoples history they will find prior criminals who are getting fed by a corrupt justice system.

    Any takers?.

    Why was there a separate article in the paper that was not shared online that depicted the Sheriff as saying we must protect these officers?. What is it, don’t like the comments of late?

    I would say…we not only have to protect these officers, we have to protect EVERYONE they serve!.

    Does this Sheriff remember a few months back when a friend of his (a city worker) was documented for a DV and it conveniently fell off his desk and didn’t make it to the Prosecutors?. I remember this same person getting a DUI with a CCW and gun confiscated – what happened to that?. Once again…depends on who you know?.

    This is a problem don’t you think?, and we wonder why more and more citizens are getting pissed off!

    This will surely be REMOVED from the about MNJ link – go look!

  18. Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital to say that I get actually loved account your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing on your feeds or even I fulfillment you access persistently fast.

  19. buckeyesyd says:

    The above comments are derived from the MNJ site here –

    Many of which will be hidden or removed – lol! , here they WON’T go away so those who make accustions this man was not convicted for can explain when they are implicated in this wrong doing. I hope the Feds are reading this!!!!

    Mr. Yambrisak also failed to tell his own lawyer that he was convicted and jailed in Indiana for the same crime. This came out in court.

    Fred Levins · Top commenter
    If we readers could possiblly learn what Yambrisak said he would do to harm Det. Smith, it would be welcome. I am grateful to Officer Rothenberg for trying to share this information with the public. Maybe a informative post can be made that will survive long enough to be read by some of us.

    Phil Sydnor · Top Commenter · Public Scrutiny
    Fred, you and I have spoken before about crimes our Courts commit. Don’t you think IF Byron was NOT convicted on what Lacey and Officer Rothenberg have shared that this is a problem?. I would assume, IF Byron was guilty of these things and not just the name calling he should be going up the river for a long, long time?. I am starting to think there’s certainly a connection here where they are ONLY doing this to deflect the TRUTH in the matter. The TRUTH being that they are covering for an illegal operation that has been going on for YEARS here!. Officer Rothenberg says it’s ONLY a website and they don’t play here – lol!. That’s why more than Byron know about this! – Do you remember the thugs who kniifed and killed a man at a bar in Mansfield?. Folks are saying this incident stemmed from a turf war that involved prostitutes, probably why this story fell off the map?. The story actually involves people the courts screwed up with, and now why they are not taking anymore chances. The games they are playing with people are getting DANGEROUS, for ALL of us, not just the cops!.

    • buckeyesyd says:

      FYI to a refute that was BLOCKED on the MNJ site – Rothenberg is not an OFFICER!, from what I am told he has had his own share of trouble and being a witness in this case will more than likely help in the appeal process. This Court cannot continue to use crooked people to create more!

      Sick & Tired of this Corrupt and Unethical Judge! (My Opinion) – 10 commandments my ASS!

    Mr. Yambrisak made threats to hurt Det. Smith. He did more then using racial slurs. Everytime someone post the actual threats the MNJ deletes the post. There is about 8 hours of audio recordings of Mr. Yambrisak asking a career criminal based out of Columbus, Ohio about buying a shotgun, an AK-47 and a 22. He wanted the serial numbers removed from the weapons. He also wanted to buy silencers. He wanted this career criminal to plant drugs or weapons in the van of a known Mansfield prostitute. Then Mr. Yambrisak was going to call the police and have this woman arrested. Mr. Yambrisak wanted this Mansfield prostitute and a Dayton prostitute murdered. Det. Smith also stated this in court. The audio recordings are in the hands of the Richland County Sheriff Department, the Law Director’s Office and the Richland County Prosecutor’s Office. The career criminal was in court during Mr. Yambrisak trail. During the trial while on break. Mr. Yambrisak saw the career criminal wearing a suit in tie in the hallway outside of the court room. Mr. Yambrisak points at the career criminal and yells to his attorney ” Don’t call that man to the stand”.

    Just more details the reporter left out.

    If she is a KNOWN prostitutes, why is she still working the streets? If it’s KNOWN this is what she does, where are the police? I know this isn’t really related to the article but, damn, if it’s that obvious and the police and courts are letting here operate…this town still is rotten to the core.

    Jonathan Rothenberg · Top commenter
    She is an internet prostitute. She places ads on backpage. She doesn’t work in Richland county. She works in Cleveland. Mostly out of cheap hotels. Motel 6 , Red Roof Inn etc.

    Fred Levins · Top commenter
    Lacey Brooks: Thanks for the details.

    Did any of the audio recordings involve efforts to harm Det. Smith, or was it all about the prostitute?

    While not stated in the article, I suppose the prosecution might have argued that given evidence from the investigation related to the prostitute, having Yambrisak be angry with Det. Smith was and is a valid reason for Det. Smith to feel threatened, even in the absence of explicit threats.

    Evidence obtained with the assistance of a career criminal is suspect. That where the jury comes in. I hope they did a good job.

    Lacey Brooks · Fort Lee, Virginia
    Fred Levins In none of the tapes did Mr. Yambrisak threaten Det. Smith. I don’t think he know of Det. Smith when the tapes were made. He only made threats towards two prostitutes. I agree with you about career criminals, however career criminals might lie but audio tapes don’t lie.

    Mr. Yambrisak and his attorney never denied anything. They just blamed his mental illness. Mr. Yambrisak mother Connie Yambrisak took the stand and amitted her son is mentally ill. She didn’t see how bad he was, she was to busy watching tv. That was her actual excuse. She was too busy watching tv to see how bad off her son was.

    Mr. Yambrisak has been paying prostitutes for over 20 years. He was convicted for stalking and harassing a prostitute in Indiana which he spent time for. He also served time in a mental hospital.

    I urge the reporter for t…his newspaper to listen to the audio recordings. It will scare you. Mr. Yambrisak didn’t want the career criminal to take the stand. I think the state used this career criminal as window dressing in this case.

    The state had a solid case against Mr. Yambrisak. Mr. Fred Levins one question for you! Would you stake your reputation as a citizen in Richland county and as a man for a mentally ill man named Byron Yambrisak? Bryon Yambrisak told many lies and half truths. You only heard Mr. Yambrisak side. Now you’re hearing the other side of the story. 12 good citizens of Richland county found him guilty on all counts in one hour and fourty five minutes.

    Fred Levins you brought up another great point. Yes Det. Smith felt even more threaten by Byron Yambrisak after the fact Det. Smith knew that Byron Yambrisak wanted to murder two prostitutes.

    Fred Levins thank you for the great post and questions.

    • buckeyesyd says:

      What Lacey Brooks don’t get is that some of us know is…These 12 jurors may be GREAT citizens, but it was the Judge who allowed evidence that was NOT in the discovery and his sentence will ONCE AGAIN BE OVERTURNED!.

      More than likely not at the State level, but it will when it hits a Federal Court!

    A picture and man’s history tells the whole story. This is a classic example of a school yard bully who used the fact that he was fat to act as a tool of intimidation punching smaller kids and stealing their lunch money. Most outgrow their personal aggressions but this credent never did. Obviously a womanizer and a woman hater this dirtball lived to humiliate and control the fairer sex. Since the only woman he could have a relation with was a prostitute gives a fair indication of how successful he was in the romance department. I’m sure he knew he was a loser all the way from that school yard to the present.
    When he was stopped by the deputy three things clicked in his narcissistic brain. He was being detained, he was being detained by a minority and he was being detained by a woman. These are all things he hated and he wasn’t g…oing to let her get away with it.
    For his efforts Porky won an all expense paid three year vacation courtesy of the State including travel, lodging and all the gruel he can eat. He even gets to bunk with some new friends. We can only hope their names are Willy and Bubba.
    I’m sure everyone realizes that this is pretty much a scare tactic and when his new lawyer Himey Goldfarb petitions the court in about a month or so our hero will get out with a stern warning. By that time he should have a hard time sitting down and a new outlook on life. Don’t bet the farm on that one. If I were to predict the future I’m thinking his first visit after getting his freedom will be to that same deputy and she shoots him dead. End of story!

    So the way this is written I wonder if there was an actual threat or if he just called her (racial) names.What was the threat? We can handle it; how about letting the public know. Is it now a threat to be a bigot? I hope that’s not the case but with this court system I can see them deciding that our freedom of speech is null and void if our speech offends them.

    Craig Goodwin · The Ohio State University
    So he gets 3 years, while certain judges in this town, give multiple felons $500 in fines for driving under suspension and using someone elses id when getting pulled over. Amazing. no wonder this area is going to hell.

    Fred Levins · Top commenter
    Jim Bennett wrote, “… I wonder if there was an actual threat or if he just called her (racial) names.”

    I wonder as well.

    It was appropriate for Yambrisak to apologize for using a racial slur, and from the story it appears that he did just that before sentencing. If I am not mistaken, defendants address the court before they are sentenced.

    Reporter: “Yambrisak briefly addressed the court, saying he was sorry for the incident.”

    It appears that Judge DeWeese’s remarks were prepared before Yambrisak addressed the court, and then he did not let the blatant contradiction with Yambrisak’s stated remorse stop him from using his prepared remarks.

    Judge DeWeese: “You [Yambrisak] show absolutely no remorse for this offense …”

    Jim Bennett wrote: “Is it now a threat to be a bigot? I hope that’s not the case but with this court system I can see them deciding that our freedom of speech is null and void if our speech offends them.”

    Jim’s point is right. I share his concern. Using racial slurs, by itself, is not a crime.

    Jonathan Rothenberg · Top commenter
    Craig Goodwin Driving under suspension isn’t a felony. What Byron was convicted of was a felony.

    Lacey Brooks · Fort Lee, Virginia
    Fred Levins Mr. Yambrisak used more then just racial slurs. Several witnesses to this crime. The problem is the reporter isn’t giving you all the details.

    Craig Goodwin · The Ohio State University
    i didn’t say driving under suspension was a felony. The guy is a multiple felon, recent felonies, was driving under suspension, and the kicker was using a false ID when the cops pulled him over. Using someone’s ID (not fake) to try and fool the cops. He had just gotten out of jail and immediately started breaking the law again. But a certain judge (who probably plays golf with his lawyer) lets him off for a fine and court costs.
    Since the actual threat is not mentioned in the news story (only that Yambrisak used a racial slur) it seems to me that he is being sent to jail for 3 years for being a bigot. Which, last time i checked, isn’t a felony.

    Jonathan Rothenberg · Top Commenter
    As Ms. Brooks stated the reporter isn’t giving you the full story. I have posted what he said but the newspaper keeps deleting my post. The reporter did a horrible job at reporting the facts of the trial and case. Byron did tell Det. Smith he was going to hurt her. Don’t be upset with the justice system because of a lousy reporter.

    Craig Goodwin · The Ohio State University
    okay. so the reporter left out details. and this guy deserved to go to jail. That still doesn’t excuse this certain judge i keep referring to, from doing what he does. I actually could go on and on about this. I’m not naming names because a) the news journal will delete my posts and b) this is a small town and he is a man of power and influence. This town is circling the drain because of constant favors being paid to golf buddies and drinking friends from high school and college.

    Phil Sydnor · Top Commenter · Public Scrutiny
    Craig, he got away with it more than likely because he’s a frequent flyer who gets paid for bringing in more criminals (a paid informant). This is the ONLY time this Judge will believe or use a criminals testimonty, when it suits the Court. Then he will in turn say those with NO RECORD are unbelievable. This Judge is a REAL Piece of work!

    Quite frankly this man has no more history of harassing anyone than Judge DeWeese and those associated with his Court. Many know this and wish someone would run against this double dipping so-called honorable Judge who is involved STILL in a little harassment case of his own! Soon there will be another, so stay tuned folks…This Judge is about to get what atleast one paper in this Country is willing to report –

    Even though I agree we should not speak this way to Law Enforcement, it is this mans Court and the County’s Probation system that actually causes people to eventually go off. We are not safer with this man on the bench, he actually lets FAR worse criminals walk that violate the public. If this were you or I, this wouldn’t h…ave been an issue and this man would not be going to Prison. I feel bad for this Deputy and all others who work their asses off just to see MOST criminals on a regular basis, no thanks to this bench preaching Judge who picks and chooses who are criminals. For a 10 commandments Judge, you would think he would have just as much anomosity towards those who are caught drinking on the job like his old bud John Mayer! The FIRED APA SUPERVISOR they are trying to keep on this tyrants team. It’s hard to lose a State job and two of this Judges closes friends to HIS SYSTEM have both done it and are now hired back by other tyrants within their system.

    More Lawsuits are coming, and unfortunately folks are blaming me for making you aware of it!

    Too funny, another story that is adding to his legacy – lol!

      Harass the cops get three years probation. Get caught with heroine get a restitution fine under a hundred bucks and MAYBE up to a year probation.

      Phil Sydnor · Top Commenter · Public Scrutiny
      Actually Thom, he got 3 years PRISON!, and 3 years Probation – a bit EXTREME I think when all this was, was a man responding to harassment by a cop, and I think she wasn’t on duty either!.

      Also, you can STEAL from kids like the AD for Madison, A REAL CRIME in Gods eyes, and this bible toting 10 commandments Judge simply gives him a slap on the wrist!.

      What’s wrong with this picture? – Professional Courtesy!. If you go before this Judge, you better be a friend of the courts – lol!
