The man who pleaded guilty to dumping oilfield waste into a Mahoning River tributary late in 2012 and early in 2013 has been sentenced to three years probation and 300 hours of community service, with no fine or restitution.
U.S. District Judge Donald C. Nugent imposed the sentence Thursday on Michael P. Guesman, 34, of Cortland.
Guesman had pleaded guilty Aug. 29 to one count of violating the federal Clean Water Act by dumping brine and drilling mud down a storm drain.
