Steve Kraus

An Ottawa County jury on Monday found Rep. Steve Kraus guilty of theft, a fifth degree felony that automatically results in the Republican's removal from office, according to the House GOP caucus.

After a multi-day hearing, an Ottawa County Court of Common Pleas jury convicted Rep. Kraus (R-Sandusky) in a case involving theft of antiques from an elderly woman's home in Danbury Township. The jury acquitted the lawmaker of breaking and entering and criminal trespass.
