Jury reaches guilty verdict on man

HURON COUNTY - A Kinde man facing a perjury charge was found guilty by jury Tuesday in Huron County Circuit Court.

Timothy Alan Pawloski, 36, of Kinde, faces up to 15 in prison for the felony, which he committed while facing an unrelated felonious assault charge between September 2016 and February 2017. While a jury acquitted him of the assault charge, he was later charged with perjury after a witness for the defense told prosecutors Pawloski had convinced her to lie on the stand.

Pawloski stood mute to the charge of perjury with his court-appointed attorney Julienne Ferris by his side dating on Monday, May 8. The jury deliberated for 45 minutes before finding him guilty of the charge.

The felonious assault charge stemmed from an investigation Pawloski during which deputies were called to his residence for an overflow of debris on the lawn. After deputies asked for removal of the “junk”, the video surveillance shows the defendant becoming verbally aggressive and proceeding to pick up two logs before walking toward the law enforcement officers.

Following further investigation, Huron County Prosecuting Attorney Timothy J. Rutkowski said a witness the defense endorsed admitted Pawloski encouraged her to lie about what she saw during the night of the incident.

Circuit Court Judge Gerald M. Prill scheduled Pawloski’s sentencing date for Aug. 28.
