Former Detroit school board president Otis Mathis III, who pleaded no contest to the felony charge of misconduct, was sentenced to two years of probation.
Mathis had been accused of fondling himself for 20 minutes during a meeting in June with former superintendent Teresa Gueyser.
According to the Detroit Free Press:
Judge Vera Massey Jones, who at a prior hearing berated Mathis for his explanation about why he was touching himself, also ordered Mathis to have no contact with the victim and no unsupervised contact with children outside of his family, and sentenced him to 50 hours of community service.
She called his actions “disgraceful,” saying, “The kind of disrespect you show for a woman will eventually show when you are with a child.”
