School vandal gets jail, is told to pay for damage

BRYAN - A Pioneer, Ohio, man who pleaded guilty to multiple counts of vandalism in a December spree in the North Central schools was sentenced to 10 days in jail and three years' probation and was ordered to repay the school district.

Mark Dye, 21, will start his sentence with 10 days in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, Stryker, with work-release privileges, the Williams County prosecutor's office said.

Under terms of his sentence, Dye must maintain full-time employment, abstain from alcohol, be assessed for substance abuse, and avoid bars and taverns. He must not have contact with Edward R. Ford II or a juvenile male involved, the two others accused in the vandalism spree, and must pay the school district $910.53.

Dye also must pay court costs and a $240 supervision fee. He must stay home between midnight and 6 a.m. unless he's commuting to or from work, the prosecutor's office said.

Dye last month pleaded guilty to nine counts of vandalism and one count of breaking and entering. He was charged with vandalizing five school buses and three vans. He was charged with breaking and entering and "causing damage to numerous windows and glass panes of the North Central Local School building."
