CLYDE (WTOL) - Helms was arrested after a state investigation showing he allegedly stole nearly $300,000 from the Clyde School District.

Even his attorney admits that Helms is guilty on some of those 19 counts.

Tiffin Defense Attorney Dean Henry has the job of representing Former Clyde Superintendent Todd Helms on 19 counts of felonious activity face helms. Henry says that may be a bit of a stretch on the states part. "I had an idea that some of those charges were going to be charged. The 19-count indictment, I was a little surprised, yes."

Helms appeared in Judge Barbara Ansted's court room Thursday just after 1:15 dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit and shackles. He said nothing to the media and was been released on his on recognizance.

Now that Helms is a free man until pre-trial later this month, he did have to surrender his motorcycle. He'll have to check in with his attorney everyday, and all of his assets have been frozen.

The prosecution did ask that hHelms surrender his passport as well, but he apparently doesn't have one.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees. He...
