Justin Greiner was sentenced in Brown County Municipal Court on Tuesday, Oct 27 for an incident in which he drunkenly trespassed into a woman’s home and fell asleep.

According to the affidavit, on Sept 27, Justin Greiner, of Leesburg, Ohio, entered a Jackson Township home through a side-door and was confronted by a woman inside. She told deputies she was sleeping when she heard the door open and thought it was her daughter arriving to drop off her granddaughter.

The woman said when she realized it was a man she had never seen before, she asked him who he was and why he was in her house. Greiner did not respond and instead grabbed a pillow from her couch, going to sleep in the hallway, the affidavit says.

Dep. Michael Meyers wrote Greiner appeared to be “highly intoxicated” at the time.

Greiner was taken into custody, charged with fourth-degree felony burglary.

On Oct 27, Greiner entered a plea of guilty to the lesser offense of first-degree misdemeanor aggravated trespassing and was sentenced to 90 days suspended with one year probation. Greiner must also undergo a drug/alcohol assessment and complete 80 hours of community service.

A show cause hearing has been set for Monday, Feb 29.
