Former North Royalton corrections officer Michael Maresh was sentenced to three years in prison June 17 for sexually assaulting a woman while working as a probation officer for Parma Municipal Court.
Maresh, 26, of Cuyahoga Falls, pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual battery but was found guilty last month.
He was charged with having non-consensual sex last June with a 32-year-old woman at her North Royalton residence. The woman was reporting to Maresh as a probationer.
Maresh was hired by North Royalton as a part-time corrections officer in 2007. He was placed on leave in July 2012 following the sexual battery charges, then discharged in August.
