A Troy man who said he couldn't remember spitting in a police officer's face but was sorry for his actions was sentenced Monday, March 19, to 30 days in the Miami County Jail.
Storm M. Walker, 21, was accused of throwing or expelling a bodily substance at a law enforcement officer June 20 in Troy. He pleaded no contest and was found guilty in January in county Common Pleas Court.
Public defender Jack Hemm said Walker wrote a letter of apology to the officer and has been receiving counseling.
"I felt horrible," Walker told Judge Christopher Gee. 'I didn't remember doing any of this. I was very, very intoxicated."
Assistant Prosecutor Janna Parker asked the judge to order time in prison, saying to have "spit land on your face ... is totally unacceptable."
Gee said he wouldn't order time in prison instead placing Waker on two years of community control and requiring him to serve 30 days in the jail as a deterrent. "The court will not tolerate this type of conduct," Gee said.
