Gee said the victim suffered serious psychological harm and there was no evidence of physical harm.
He pointed out Sharp had been in jail since the offense occurred last summer and there had been no repeat of the behavior in part because Sharp was taking his medication.
Sharp was ordered to complete the community control, obtain employment, continue mental health treatment and take medication as prescribed. If he violates terms of the community control, Sharp could face up to a year in prison.
