A former Rossford principal found guilty of child pornography charges last year is to be released from prison.
William Buzzell, 48, Perrysburg, will be released from prison 17 months into his four year sentence for three counts of pandering sexually-oriented materials involving a minor, and one count of possessing criminal tools - the computer he used to download the images.
He was also sentenced to five years of post-release control.
The judicial release hearing was held in the court of Wood County Judge Reeve Kelsey on Thursday.
Buzzell was eligible for release based on the amount of time he had already served in prison.
Among the terms of his release, Buzzell was put on community control sanctions for five years, must undergo mental health and sex offender counseling, maintain employment, and perform community service hours. He is also required to keep the Adult Probation department appraised of all computers he owns, and allow them to be searched at any time.
Violation of the terms could send Buzzell back to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence.
The crimes were discovered by Perrysburg police when they raided Buzzell's home in February of 2011. Police also searched his office at Glenwood School, where he was principal, but found no evidence of criminal activity there.
