Sentencing for controversial Internet blogger Jeffrey Weinhaus is set for 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at the Franklin County Courthouse.

Weinhaus was found guilty Oct. 10 of one count each of assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action in Franklin County Circuit Court. He also was found guilty of possession of morphine and marijuana.

The jury recommended a total of 63 years on the four charges.
