Beacon Journal staff report

A Lorain County man is guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol for the fifth time this time for a crash in Sharon Township earlier this year.

A Medina County jury found Mark McCraw, 54, of Elyria, guilty after a trial that lasted just over two days.

Authorities say McCraw drove his car into a ditch on state Route 94 on April 1.

A Good Samaritan called police to report the crash.

McCraw told police that his car had been stolen and he had walked from Wadsworth looking for the car.

McCraw will be sentenced Jan. 2 and faces up to 18 months in prison because of his previous DUI convictions.
