A Greenfield man was sentenced to 15 months in prison recently after pleading guilty to one count of endangering children.

As previously reported, Joshua Hammond, 37, of Greenfield was indicted by a Highland County grand jury on two fourth-degree felony charges of endangering children on Sept. 1, 2020.

According to court records, Hammond entered a guilty plea in November 2020 to count one of the indictment, which alleged that Hammond “created a substantial risk to the health or safety” of a child under age 18. This allegedly occurred “on or about the period of July 24 through July 27, 2020.”

On Jan. 28, 2021, Hammond was sentenced to a definite determinate term of 15 months, with jail time credit of seven days. He was also ordered to pay court costs.

The Ohio Department of Corrections shows that Hammond was admitted into the Correctional Reception Center in Orient on Feb. 3.

According to the indictment, Hammond was “previously convicted of endangering children in Highland County Court on Jan. 27, 2020,” almost exactly one year to the date before his conviction in Common Pleas Court.
