EUGENE, Ore. - Deputy District Attorney Dave Mintz sat down with KEZI 9 News Thursday to talk about the Hobson Mason case. Mason pleaded guilty to harassing and sexually abusing a student outside South Eugene High School.

Hobson was sentenced Wednesday to six months in jail and four years of post-prison bench probation.

Mintz said this kind of probation means he won't have a probation officer to check in with throughout the four year period.

Mason also has to register as a sex offender and can't contact the victim or any other minors. He also isn't allowed to be near South Eugene High School.

Mason has been convicted twice of public indecency prior to the current sex abuse case. He also faces trial in January for a third public indecency case.

Watch the full interview with Mintz and KEZI 9 News Anchor Bryan Anderson.
