Jury Finds Jan Dollahan Jr. Guilty of Criminal Recklessness, Invasion of Privacy

Jan Dollahan Jr. has been found guilty of Criminal Recklessness and Invasion of Privacy, after neighbors say he shot multiple rounds at their property, in an incident in May of 2016. Starke County Prosecutor Nick Bourff says a jury took less than an hour to return the guilty verdicts in Starke Circuit Court Wednesday.

He says he presented testimony from the two victims, who lived next door to Dollahan. They said that Dollahan yelled obscenities at them, and then fired several rounds from two different weapons. They added that they were home with their two children when it happened, according to Bourff.

Bourff says testimony was also heard from Officer Kenneth Tomasko with the Starke County Sheriff’s Department.

Dollahan faces six to 30 months in the Starke County Justice Center and a $10,000 fine for the Level 6 felony of criminal recklessness. Bourff says the misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy carries a penalty of up to 12 months in jail and a $5,000 fine. A sentencing hearing is set for May 30 at 9:00 a.m
