Though he will have to seek sexual offender treatment, a former Michigan man will not have to register as a sexual offender following his sentencing Thursday before Judge Robert Pollex.
Ryan Kutnyak, who turned 25 on Sunday, of Fremont and formerly of East Lansing, Mich. was ordered placed on three years of community control sanctions for a 2009 crime.
Originally charged as a rape and sexual assault n August 2009, the charge was amended to assault.
His case was brought back to the active docket following an appellate court decision which overturned a guilty plea and verdict.
As part of the new plea agreement, a new alternative case was dismissed regarding the same incident.
The judge noted how the defendant admitted that alcohol played a role in his actions, but admonished him that "alcohol is no excuse."
Pollex thus ordered substance abuse treatment, along with Alcoholics Anonymous or other similar 12-step program, 200 hours of community service and required that he maintain gainful employment.
Kutnyak is also ordered to have no contact with the victim. The sentence was similar to his original sentence without the sexual offender registration requirement.
The judge reserved 12 months in prison should he not follow all the requirements of his sanctions.
