TROY — A Troy man accused of throwing a cup of blood in the face of a Miami County correction officer bringing him a meal pleaded no contest to felony harassment with a bodily substance.
Tyler Sharp, 25, was found guilty this week by Judge Christopher Gee in county Common Pleas Court. He withdrew a previous plea of not guilty by reason of insanity in the Aug. 14 incident. An evaluation of Sharp had found him competent to stand trial.
Sharp faces up to one year in prison at sentencing July 17. He remains in jail in lieu of $2,500 bail.
