Berrien County Judge Rules that Young Man Does Not Have to Register as Sex Offender in Michigan
On Monday, October 19, 2015, Berrien County Trial Court Judge Angela Pasula resentenced 20-year-old Zach Anderson to 2 years probation under the Holmes Youthful Training Act (HYTA). HYTA is a special probation for individuals ages 17-23 that allows them to keep a criminal conviction off of their record if they successfully complete probation. Earlier in 2015, Mr. Anderson pled guilty to 4th-degree criminal sexual conduct; in April 2015, he was sentenced to 5 years probation (without the privileges of HYTA ), and he would have been required to register as a sex offender in Michigan for 25 years.
