A Sandusky teen released from a youth prison in January after serving more than two years for murder will return to prison to finish his suspended sentence.
This time, however, he'll head to an adult correctional facility.
Michael McGee, 18, spent two years and three months behind bars for his role in the October 2007 murder of Stephen Cobb, 29.
His total sentence was three years, but retired visiting judge James Ray let him out nine months early, in January 2010.
On Sept. 3, however, Perkins police arrested McGee for driving a vehicle without permission after leading police on a car chase and a subsequent foot chase.
Visiting Judge Brad Smith of Sandusky County and other juvenile court officials said they've tried numerous programs to help McGee, but it has become apparent he will not be rehabilitated in the juvenile justice system.
"Everyone here went out of their way to help you," Smith said to McGee. "You make my job easy. I will sleep well, for your actions have decided what's going to happen to you."
Smith then imposed a six-year prison sentence, giving McGee credit for 840 days served. He must now serve three years and seven months in an adult prison.
