Northwood man sentenced for hog-tying child


A Northwood man found guilty of leaving his stepson hog-tied for hours has been sentenced.

Jason Sosnowicz, 42, appeared March 22 in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.


She imposed a minimum sentence of 9.5 years with an indefinite maximum term of 13 years.

Sosnowicz had been indicted in August for felonious assault and two counts endangering children. A direct bill of information was filed in October adding two more child endangering charges.

The assault charge qualified for Reagan Tokes Act sentencing, which allowed Mack to set an indefinite term in prison that is half as much as the minimum sentence.

Jason and Tabetha Sosnowicz were arrested July 29 and charged with endangering children after Northwood police responded to the Baymont Inn in the 2000 block of Oregon Road on a welfare check request.

Officers found a 12-year-old boy tied with his wrists and ankles behind his back.

Jason Sosnowicz, who is the boy’s stepfather, was in the room. Tabetha Sosnowicz returned shortly after.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Perrysburg Municipal Court, the couple tied up the boy because he was getting into candy and stealing it.

According to the indictment, the boy was tied up at approximately 3 a.m. and was still tied up when police arrived at 12:30 p.m.

Mack in November sentenced Tabetha Sosnowicz, 38, to 36 months for three child endangering charges.

She is incarcerated at the Northeast Pre-Release Center in Cleveland.
