A Walbridge man pleaded guilty to amended misdemeanor charges in a sex case Monday.
Nathaniel Miller, 21, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual imposition, a third-degree misdemeanor. The charges carry with them a possible 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
He appeared in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Reeve Kelsey.
Miller had been indicted previously on one count of rape, a first-degree felony, and one count of unlawful conduct with a minor, a fourth-degree felony; and had a bill of information on a further count of sexual battery, a third-degree felony. The charges were reduced as part of a plea agreement.
The incidents reportedly stemmed from two incidents at a Perrysburg Township location. In one of the incidents, Miller allegedly demanded a sex act after indicating he had a pellet gun in the area.
Miller was given an own recognizance bond. The matter is set for sentencing on June 16 at 3:30 p.m.

Four northern Wood County men were indicted for rape and other charges by a Wood County grand jury this week.
Michael C. Horn, 41, Rossford, was indicted on six counts of rape, a first-degree felony.
According to the indictment, the charges relate to incidents allegedly occurring between Aug. 1 and December 24, 2013, involving two separate juvenile females, listed as being 14 and 15 years of age at the time of the most recent incidents. The indictment indicates that both of the alleged victims were "compelled ... to submit by force of threat of force" and their ability to consent or resist "was substantially impaired."
Each of the charges carries with it a sexually violent predator specification.
Kevin R. Scott, 52, Perrysburg, was indicted on five counts of rape.
According to the indictment, all of the incidents occurred between October 2005, and July 2007, and involved a juvenile female who was between the ages of 8 and 10.

Concerning the sexual battery charges, the indictment alleges that the girl "was unaware that the act was being committed" and Barker "knew that the victim's ability to appraise the nature of or control of her conduct was substantially impaired."

A Findlay man has been charged with first-degree aggravated arson after he allegedly threw a "Drano bomb" that exploded near a group of people Thursday.
No injuries were reported.
Taylor Dible, 20, was arrested after the incident, which occurred at 8:15 p.m. at the Copper Beech apartments, 2057 Napoleon Road.
Maj. Tony Hetrick of the Bowling Green Police Division said this morning a group of other people were standing near one of the apartment buildings when the bomb - consisting of a soft drink bottle and other components - was thrown.
"He (Dible) did yell to them to move and they did confirm that did happen," said Hetrick.
After the bomb was thrown and landed, it exploded.
Dible was later found inside one of the apartments and taken into custody after he reportedly admitted to the incident.
"He said he made it to throw into the field, but threw it in the other direction and landed by those people," said Hetrick, saying Dible indicated "he didn't want to hurt anybody."
