      Andrew Zepeda appeals jail sentence

      Andrew Zepeda in a Wood Co. court in 2011.

      Just days before reporting to jail for a 30 day sentence, former morning radio show host Andrew Zepeda has asked a judge hold off on his incarceration.

      Zepeda was sentenced in December to a month behind bars and five years of community control to be served after his release. The jail sentence is to commence on Jan. 21 at the Wood County Justice Center and stems from Zepeda violating probation in his case related to the 2010 break-in at his former pizzeria business.

      On Tuesday, Zepeda's attorney, Beau Harvey, filed an appeal to the 6th District Court seeking an Appellate Bond and to Stay the Incarceration portion of his client's sentencing pending appeal.

      Just after Christmas, Zepeda, along with four other staffers including wife, Michelle, were terminated by Cumulus Broadcasting, removing them as hosts of Star 105's morning radio show, "Andrew Z in the Morning: The People's Show."

      No other details pertaining the appeal were released on Tuesday.
