Jon William Snyder, 20, plead guilty to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The Washington Court House man was sentenced to seven months in prison Monday as part of his sentence and conviction in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas.

Snyder was indicted in March by a Fayette County grand jury for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

The female victim was 15-years-old, according to Jess Weade, the Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney.

Snyder admitted he “should have known better,” according to Weade.

As part of the agreed sentence, Snyder was ordered to seven months in prison, Tier II sex offender registration, and mandatory supervision by a parole officer for five years. As a Tier II sex offender, Snyder is required to register in-person each 180 days for a period of 25 years.

Snyder was ordered to an STD screening for viruses, according to the record, as well as payment of costs for prosecution.

Following sentencing Monday, Snyder was conveyed to the Corrections Reception Center in Orient, Ohio to commence his sentence.
