The Zanesville law director pleaded no contest Thursday to two misdemeanors in connection with buying sex.

A judge found Scott Hillis guilty of soliciting and trespassing.

Muskingum County Prosecutor Michael Haddox says Hillis was accused of paying a prostitute for sex in a private driveway.

The prosecutor says on the night in question, "a vehicle pulled into that driveway prior to the sexual act occuring but after he had paid her."

Hillis was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but the sentence was suspended as long as he pays a $400 fine and does 30 hours of community service.

His driver's license has also been suspended for three months.

Hillis has reportedly issued a statement to other media outlets.

WOUB News has left a message for Hillis, asking for that statement and an interview but he hasn't gotten back to us yet.

10TV reports he has no plans to resign.
