STEUBENVILLE -Jeffrey L. Chevalier, 51, of Toronto was sentenced Monday by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. to nine months in prison after Chevalier admitted to a probation violation.
Chevalier was sentenced by Bruzzese in July to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center after Chevalier pleaded guilty to importuning.
Chevalier admitted he refused to participate in programs at the Eastern Ohio Correction Center.
Chevalier was arrested by Toronto Police in March after he asked two teenage boys to come back to his apartment. He admitted in court that he asked the one boy if the boy was "pimping" out his friend. He then followed the boys until they ran.
Bruzzese ruled that Chevalier is a sexually oriented offender, requiring him to report his address annually to the sheriff's department for 15 years.
