Former Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputy Michael Pizzo, plead guilty today, April 6 to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, according to the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.
Pizzo faces up to 18 months in prison for pleading to the fourth-degree felony in Warren County Common Pleas Court and will be classified as a Tier 2 sexual offender. A date for sentencing has not been set.
Pizzo plead guilty to having an unlawful sexual relationship with a juvenile male that he met on “Craigs List.”
“Taking advantage of a young man is completely unacceptable,” said Warren County’s Chief Assistant Prosecutor, Bruce McGary. “Thanks to the cooperation of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Assistant Prosecutor John Arnold this man is no longer wearing a badge, and he will be punished for his crime.”
