A Sandusky man was sentenced to seven years in prison Monday for incidents last year, in which he fired shots at a vehicle downtown and also assaulted a child.

Jarrett McDaniel, 27, of Ashburn Drive, was transferred to the Lorain Correctional Institution on Tuesday.

On May 17, McDaniel fired three shots at a man and woman as they drove away from a Columbus Avenue bar. One bullet grazed the driver’s side door. The two victims had just parted ways with a group of friends, one of which was the mother of McDaniel’s children.

After McDaniel was released three weeks later on bond, he promptly began assaulting a 3-year-old boy. He punched the child’s chest, picked him up by his ears and bit his buttocks, Sandusky police said.

For the shooting, Sandusky police charged McDaniel with attempted murder, felonious assault and weapons violations. For assaulting the child, prosecutors leveled charges of felonious child endangering and domestic violence, according to court records.

A grand jury later indicted McDaniel on only some of those charges, and in an early January deal, he pleaded guilty to two counts of felonious assault, having a weapon under disability, discharging a firearm near a prohibited premises and an amended misdemeanor child endangering charge.

He was sentenced to seven years and shipped off to Lorain, but a clerical error on court documents forced Erie County Common Pleas Court Judge Roger Binette to hold a second sentencing hearing Monday.

On McDaniel’s paperwork, one of his weapons charges was listed as a fifth-degree felony, but it should have been a thirddegree felony, a judicial administrator said.

The Bureau of Sentencing Computation caught the error and ordered another hearing. McDaniel’s sentence remained the same.

He received four years for each of his charges, with each sentence running simultaneously. An additional three years were added for a weapons specification.

So shooting people at people is just assault, not attempted murder? He didn't have any intention of trying to kill them by unloading multiple rounds randomly into the vehicle?

Well golly gee.

Coram Deo

Beating/assaulting a small child like pedophilia is almost impossible to cure. The judge was probably constrained by Ohio law in giving him any more time. Seven years hardly seems enough. He should be removed from society for a long, long time. Our laws needs to be revised for this type of crime.

Well he bit a child on the buttocks that is kind of pedophile like. He needs locked away for a lonngg time

Dr. Information

I wonder if they are honoring him for Black History Month?

WATCHED_1s

Maybe when he gets out they will haha

No Dr but your mother did everyday.

I think this is one of the most RIDICULOUS sentences ever! Judge Binette you should be ashamed of yourself! With this kind of record 7 YEARS is all you could give him so in 7 yrs we will still have to deal with this kind of scum??????

Yes, but he gave 25 years to a man for belonging to a "gang" even though he didn't hurt anybody. He also gave 27 years to another man for a conspiracy to commit armed robbery even though he wasn't part of the robbery.

There's a definite pattern to Judge Binette's sentences. He goes relatively easy on men who actually hurt people especially children but throws the book at black men he believes are the "brains" of criminal enterprises that may compete with other criminal enterprises.

Julie R.

Agree.

Stop It

Heh...

lmalley77

WOW!!! Let's just forget about the fact that he attempted to kill some people AND assaulted a THREE YEARS OLD BABY!!!! He must have become a snitch, because they are handing out harsher prison sentences for drug dealers than this!!! Hate to see what happens when he gets out of prison in a few years! Let's hope and pray he doesn't really end up killing someone then and that hanging over the judges conscience! The judicial system is screwed up!!

candleburner

Can we only hope that the rumors about what happens to child abusers and molesters once they actually get to prison are actually true in this case? Seven years in prison for a multitude of crimes which include grabbing a 3 year old baby by the ears, punching him in the chest and biting his backside. I'm not a big believer in things like this with the exception for times when babies are hurt!! This is crazy!!

Julie R.

Not only fires shots into a vehicle downtown but even punches a 3-year-old in the chest, picks him up by his ears, and bites his buttocks?

Personally, I would have given this dirt-bag loser FIFTY years for the assault on the little 3-year-old alone. What the heck is the matter with some of these women out there today that they put their kids at the mercy of trash like this?

mimi's word

Because the courts keep letting him have rights as a father....

Julie R.

All those criminal charges ~ including domestic violence and child endangering ~ and the idiot courts would actually give this piece of work rights as a father? Wonder who the judge was.

Stop It

Warkling Spiggle.

santown419

Miss stop it you family was the best ones yet set the stage for all the others look at you.

google me

Re-read that last sentence I think/hope the Register did the math wrong.

justforalaugh

It's not a mistake. The courts are going to allow him to serve two sentences at the same time. Just don't seem right.

Ralph J.

The lawyer who tried to expose corruption in Ottawa County got 8 years total. No simultaneous sentence.

DGMutley

Third domestic violence, attempted murder, weapon under disability, 2nd child endangering charge. Could have gone to jail forever. I think lmalley77 is right, he started snitching everybody out--probably couldn't shut him up. He's probably still talking.

What a scumbag to lift a kid up by his ears after punching him in the chest. Then he bites him.

Julie R.

Wasn't Roger Binette the head of that Drug Task Force before he became a judge? I always thought that was the real reason behind the witchhunt to get rid of Kim Nuesse --- she didn't want to start it back up again. And then when Erie County's favorite retired Lorain County rent-a-judge Cirigliano said Nuesse shouldn't be reinstated, one of the reasons being she wasn't keeping Kevin Baxter & Sheriff Lyons informed of secret drug raids, I thought that once again.

Babo

Great memory! If you examine the long sentences they are handed out to black drug dealers or black men who may be drug dealing, but the truly violent get short sentences to return to harm society again.
Meanwhile true corrupt activity goes on unimpeded.

doctorsRdrugdealer

Judge Roger Binette, makes alotta mistakes for only being in office a few years. Time to get this joker out of here. Binette use to be the drug prosecutor why u think he gives the long sentences??? Duh VOTE JUDGE ROGER BINETTE OUT!!!

Babo

Yes, his criminal sentences are frequently overturned for violating the law and that costs taxpayers a lot of money in appeals and prison costs. The cases are usually drug cases and given his past as the drug prosecutor for Baxter he usually does whatever the prosecutor wants in those cases.

Also, he admitted when he was elected that he knew very little about Civil Law which should take up about half of his docket time. So what did he do? He went out and hired a Magistrate at considerable expense to the taxpayers to handle his civil cases!.

Why the Democratic Party doesn't find somebody to run against him is beyond me, unless maybe Baxter is happy playing puppet master.

Julie R.

I believe Binette has two magistrates, so which one are you talking about? Christopher Stallkamp? If so, I could have a field day on that one!

Babo

My goodness he has TWO Magistrates! Wow even more waste of Taxpayer funds! The entire Common Pleas Court General Division should only have one Magistrate between Judges Tone and Binette.

Don't know his name but his civil magistrate worked for SURPRISE Murray and Murray.

Julie R.

Binette's had two magistrates ever since he became a judge. One is a Steven Bechtel and the other one is Stallkamp. Tone has one magistrate --- I believe his last name is Quinn. Also, remember how right after Binette was elected how he gave Bechtel and Stallkamp big raises over the supposed objections of the county commissioners, Pat Shenigo and Bill Monaghan? Remember how Shenigo publicly criticized Binette? (of course knowing how they work in Erie County you can bet that public criticism was just for show)

Babo

Bechtel handles virtually all of the civil cases. Binette just signs off on them.

I remember the argument for adding the fourth judgeship was the case load and back up in Maschari's court. Promises were made that there would be no substantial expansion of the court budget. Hah!, Judge Binette is actually more inefficient than Maschari because he needs two magistrates while I don't think she used any.

Actually what happened is segments of the community (legal community and some businesses) got what they wanted; a magistrate to which Binette can steer particular cases and outcomes predictable.

Julie R.

So it's now taking TWO judges ~ Binette & Tone ~ plus THREE magistrates at the taxpayers expense to do the job that the former Common Pleas Court Judge Ann Maschari did for years & years by herself w/o a magistrate? Wow, what a CON job on the people that was.

I also can't speak for two of those magistrates but I sure can speak for one and that one was on the very same level as those retired old fix-it judges that corrupt Erie County is still using at the taxpayers expense.

doctorsRdrugdealer

On a different note this is the same guy that was in jail calling the police station so much while in jail trying to tell on anyone and everyone, that the C.Os at the jail called over the P.A to him and said the task force said stop fing calling them.... All the inmates in his pod heard this and quess what??? He got beat up minutes later!! lol there lucky he didn't get murdered and they put his life in danger...But with the charges who cares! lol #truestory

Julie R.

Wasn't there another case of Judge Roger Binette's in the paper a few or more years ago --- something about Binette tacking on more years to some black guy's sentence because he failed to show up in court on the day of his sentencing? Didn't the guy file an appeal and the 6th District Court agreed and said Binette could not do that? (I think, but I'm not sure, that guy was a drug dealer, too) I remember that because Binette was quoted in the Register giving the reason he gave the guy more time. He said he saw him earlier that day (I think it was at the Tractor Supply Co.) and reminded him he was to be in court that afternoon and the guy promised he would be there but didn't show up ...... but once again, the 6th District Court of Appeals said Binette could not do that.

Some people get stiffer penalties for selling drugs. This piece of s*** human being deserves a lot worse, especially considering he sexually assaulted a child. I have no remorse for this disgusting, disgraceful, and embarrassing degenerate. I hope he walks into oncoming traffic and someone urinates on his grave.
