A judge ordered him to serve a year in jail followed by three years on probation as punishment for the crime. The maximum sentence for a Class felony is eight years. The mother took the stand Wednesday afternoon to tell the judge that, while she wished the punishment outlined in the plea deal could have been stricter, she knew the agreement was best for her son. The victim told police Fisher assaulted him on several occasions when they were left alone together, court documents state. The boy said Fisher threatened to hurt him if he ever told anyone what happened, court documents state.

Having to face Fisher again and testify against him at trial would have been traumatizing, she said.

JAIL CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 STATE BRIEF City repeals sidewalk snow-clearing rule ELKHART A northern Indiana city has repealed an ordinance that required homeowners to clear snow from the sidewalks in front of their homes. The Elkhart City Council rescinded the snow-clearing requirement Monday, weeks after questions were raised about the legality. Property owners had been required to clear snow within 24 hours of the end of a storm and faced fines of up to $25 for failing to do so. The Elkhart Truth reported that Mayor Tim Neese had said the shoveling requirement passed in 2009 was not legally enforceable since it required private citizens to maintain public right-of-way sidewalks. Proponents of the change say they hope good will, neighborliness and children looking to earn a few bucks will help keep the sidewalks clear this winter and beyond.

STATE BRIEF Police: Woman injected son with fecal matter INDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis police say they arrested a woman after she told them she injected fecal matter into her IV tube while he was hospitalized for leukemia.

Police say the mother told them she began injecting her son with fecal matter on Nov. 13 to get him moved from the intensive care unit to another hospital floor where she thought he would receive better treatment.
