Lawyer says 19-year-old took weapon from friend, then had it stolen by felon

The second of two teenagers charged in connection with a gun stolen from a Port Washington house pleaded guilty to a felony and was sentenced to five months in jail during a hearing last week that shed light on what may have happened to the missing Ruger .44 magnum revolver. 

Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams withheld a prison sentence and placed former Port Washington High School student Joshua R. Schires, who turned 19 last month, on probation for 18 months. The jail sentence is a condition of probation.

Schires pleaded guilty to one count of receiving stolen property. A misdemeanor charge of obstructing officers was dismissed.

Schires and Dakota Manske, 18, were arrested in October 2015 after their peers tipped off police to the fact Manske kept a stolen gun in his car, sparking an investigation hampered by conflicting stories.
