Tiffin man sentenced to 2 years in prison

A Tiffin man who admitted he failed to provide notice of an address change was sentenced to two years in prison during a hearing in Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Kelbley’s courtroom Monday morning.

Nathaniel L. Hill, 44, had pleaded guilty to a charge of failure to provide notice of residence address change, a second-degree felony.

Kelbley sentenced him to two years in prison, with credit for 44 days served, during Monday’s hearing.

Before sentencing, Hill said he understood what he had done is wrong. He said he changed his life completely since he got out of prison in 2009 and was hoping for an opportunity to keep his job.

He had had six months left of his registration period.

Rebeka Beresh, assistant Seneca County prosecutor, said people have rules and regulations for a reason, including to protect the public.

“I am concerned,” she said.

Hill had been living about 700 feet from Washington K-1 when was found, according to information provided during Monday’s hearing.

In 2004, Hill had pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted rape, second-degree felonies, and two counts of gross sexual imposition, third-degree felonies, according to court records.

He was sentenced to five years in prison in 2005.
