Former state Rep. Bob Young of Green was sentenced in Barberton Municipal Court on Friday after being convicted of domestic violence and 3 other misdemeanors related to the violation of a protection order. 

Young was convicted of domestic violence in October for a July altercation with his wife. He then accepted a plea deal in November on his other charges.

The Beacon Journal reports that visiting Judge Edward O’ Farrell sentenced Young to probation and no jail time on several conditions including that he wear a device that monitors alcohol consumption, although city prosecutor's note that Young tampered with his alcohol monitoring device 5 times while awaiting sentencing. If Young violates the terms of his probation he could face 2 years in jail and 5 years probation.

Young stepped down from his position in the Ohio House last fall, after his second arrest, and following mounting pressure from fellow Ohio republicans calling on him to resign.
