PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man who groped four women, including a U.S. Marshal, along a Pittsburgh trail has been sentenced to house arrest and counseling.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1CHa8ob ) reports an Allegheny County judge sentenced 20-year-old Robert Flynn, of Pittsburgh, to time served and paroled him to a counseling center.

Flynn will stay there until counselors say he can go home. After completing the program, Flynn will serve a year on house arrest and four years’ probation.

The marshal was Flynn’s final victim. After he grabbed her buttocks and pulled down her shorts on Sept. 2, 2014 she chased him, kicked him in the groin and punched him when he lunged at her.

Flynn’s attorney says he was seeing a psychiatrist before his arrest and is in “clear need” of mental health treatment.
