41-year-old Rossiter may face add'l charges in surrounding counties

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Buffalo man convicted of sexual battery and robbery was sentenced in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court on Friday morning.

Court documents show that 41-year-old Brian A. Rossiter was sentenced to a total of eight years in prison in connection with crimes that occurred in September 2003, November 2013 and March 2014. Judge David A. Ellwood sentenced Rossiter to three years imprisonment for sexual battery and five years each for robbery, burglary and kidnapping, to be served concurrently.

Rossiter was also ordered to pay more than $7,000 in restitution to Southeastern Equipment for damage done to a trailer in the commission of a crime.

Rossiter previously entered guilty pleas to the four charges as part of a negotiated plea. Pursuant to the terms of that plea, Rossiter entered a plea of guilty to the sexual battery charge which requires that he register as a Tier-3 sex offender. Under Ohio Law a Tier-3 sex offender registration requires the offender to register with the Sheriff's Office every 90 days for life.

Authorities say Rossiter will likely face additional charges in surrounding counties.
