Teen Who Posed as Senator, Toured High School Pleads Guilty

(ABC 13)

Monday, 28 March 2016 05:28 PM

A teenager who toured an Ohio high school while posing as a state senator has pleaded guilty to impersonating a peace officer.

Prosecutors say they'll recommend probation for Marion resident Izaha Akins. The 18-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to the felony charge.

Authorities say Akins spoke to a government class at Mohawk High School in Sycamore for an hour last December. Officials didn't realize they'd been duped until Republican Sen. David Burke showed up weeks later for a scheduled appearance.

Burke calls what Akins did an extremely elaborate scheme. The impersonating a peace officer charge includes anyone who poses as a state employee.

Toledo's The Blade newspaper reports Akins said he was making a point about school security in small communities.

A message left with Akins' attorney Monday hasn't been returned.
