Former COO of car dealership doing time on multiple charges including sex crimes

Local News

The former Chief Operating Officer of a local car dealership is going to prison for sex crimes.

53-year-old Russell Owens will spend the next 5-10 years behind bars.  He pleaded no contest to having unprotected sex with five different Crawford County women without telling them he was HIV positive. 

Owens is currently in prison for stealing more than $60,000 from his former employer, Street Track and Trail.  And, when he’s done serving all of his state prison sentences, he still faces a year in federal prison on firearms charges.
