ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Sentencing is scheduled Tuesday for an Ohio man on charges related to the theft and sale of human skulls and skeletons.
The Athens Messenger reports (http://bit.ly/1shuzMZ ) that the attorney for 29-year-old former lab assistant Weston Moquin is asking a federal judge to sentence him to probation. The attorney says he is a first-time, non-violent offender who stole to support a drug habit. He says Moquin needs treatment, and also to be able to work to pay restitution.
Court documents show thefts from Ohio University in 2011-'12 included human bones, other preserved human remains, autopsy saws and other items the university had as teaching aids. The records state Moquin reaped nearly $85,000 from online sales.
He has pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of stolen goods and to a theft count.
