He was also ordered to complete a rehabilitation requirement and made subject to a 10-year sexual harm prevention order.

The latest offence came to light when a woman complained he had borrowed her computer but refused to give it back.

Prosecutors in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex-abuse trial dropped one of the 52 counts against him Monday because the statute he was charged under did not apply at the time of the alleged illegal contact. The charge relates to an accuser identified by prosecutors as Victim 7.
