CLEVELAND (AP) - A northeast Ohio police officer will avoid jail but must serve a year of probation for beating a man last spring following a police charity event in Cleveland.

WOIO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/25d2q2q ) Adam Campbell was sentenced on Thursday after jurors convicted him of assaulting Steven Crupp in March 2015. Crupp suffered six broken ribs, a fractured hip and an abscessed tooth in the incident.

The Akron police officer had been accused of attacking Crupp after a police scholarship fundraiser. He’s been on unpaid leave.

Campbell must pay a $500 fine, court costs and $1,000 to the victim. He must also complete an anger management course. He’ll be sent to jail if he violates his probation.

Campbell’s lawyer says he expects there will be a civil suit and an appeal.
