Zach Mettenberger's attorney said he pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery for inappropriate touching dating back to a March 7 incident at a Remerton, Georgia bar, according to Southern Judicial Circuit district attorney J. David Miller.
“The sexual battery counts were the result of Mettenberger grabbing the breasts and touching the buttocks of the victim,” Miller said in an e-mail to Tim Tucker and the AJC.
Mettenberger is now responsible for the following:
A) He was sentenced to "two concurrent 12-month periods of probation under the First Offender act..."
B) Gets to pay $35 per month for a probation supervision fee and a fine of $2,000- totalling $2,840- if our math is correct.
Mettenberger also cannot drink any alcohol. He can't be at a place where alcohol is sold. He's banished from the city of Valdosta and cannot have any contact with the victim.
The other charges in the case were dropped in light of the specs laid out by the Lowndes County DA.
