He pleaded guilty to a lesser-included offense of burglary, a third-degree felony, and disrupting public services, a fourth-degree felony, during a hearing in Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff’s courtroom.

Coleman had been accused of forcing open a door at 421 S. Poplar St., Fostoria, and breaching another inner kitchen door, gaining access to the inside of the residence, according to court records.
