Wood County Common Pleas Judge Reeve Kelsey granted a motion for judicial release filed by William Buzzell, 48, who has served 17 months of his four-year prison sentence.
Judge Kelsey placed him on community control for five years and imposed a number of restrictions, including the requirement that he follow all of those terms or face a return to prison.
The judge said he
would reserve the right to impose the remainder of Buzzell's four-year term as well as an additional five years in prison if there are any violations "especially if that does involve any sexually oriented offense for which there will be zero tolerance."
As part of Buzzell's probation, Judge Kelsey ordered him to perform 300 hours of community service in addition to the 300 hours imposed as part of his original sentence.
directed him to be assessed for mental health care and to complete and pay for that treatment.
