Warren man given an 18-month prison sentence

WARREN — A Warren man was given an 18-month prison sentence Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to a tampering with evidence charge.

Raphael Burney Jr., 30, of 1439 West Ave., appeared before Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Andrew D. Logan and opted to bypass a pre-sentence background investigation.

The case involved a traffic stop May 22, 2019, where Burney was found by Warren police overdosed on drugs, prosecutors said.
