Lucas County Common Pleas Judge James Bates imposed the sentence Tuesday on Franklin Harris, Jr., 47, of the 1600 block of Ironwood Avenue. Harris had pleaded no contest June 27 and was found guilty of the fifth-degree felony for working at Brooks Bar & Grill, 4044 Monroe St., without a license despite two prior misdemeanor and one other felony conviction for the same offense.

Defense attorney Mary Bollinger told the court her client was a military veteran who believed he was on the payroll as an employee of Brooks Bar when he worked there as an armed guard, but he later learned he was not.
