Lordstown prosecutor and former Newton Falls Law Director, Andrew Joseph Fritz has been sentenced to one year of probation after pleading guilty to amended charges stemming from an OVI arrest back in June.

Fritz pled guilty to one count of Physical Control in Warren Municipal Court on Friday with his previous charges of OVI, Driving in Marked Lanes and Distracted Driving being dismissed.

In June, Fritz was arrested for OVI after being pulled over by OSP and failing a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test revealing a blood alcohol level higher than the legal limit of .008.

He had previously pled not guilty to these charges.
