A Perrysburg man plans to appeal his prison sentence for aggravated assault.
Todd Woodworth, 35, appeared Tuesday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Matt Reger.
He had pleaded guilty in January to the amended charge of aggravated assault, a fourth-degree felony. He had been indicted in December for gross sexual imposition.
Defense attorney Kent Sobran said his client had successfully completed a domestic violence program and had met all the conditions of his bond.
He asked for a sentence of community control, which was the same recommendation of the state.
“I don’t believe I did anything,” Woodworth said. “I don’t believe anything happened.”
According to the indictment, from Aug. 22, 2021, to Sept. 4, 2021, Woodworth had sexual contact with a 10-year-old girl.
Reger said Woodworth admitted to the facts at the time of his plea.
Reger imposed a sentence of 17 months in the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
Woodworth asked if there was anything he could do to avoid jail time.
Reger said he could appeal.
Sobran said his client would do so.
