Dennis Dellifield begins 90-day jail sentence 1.jpg

According to the Multi-County Correctional Center, 70-year-old Dennis Dellifield is currently serving his 90-day jail sentence for two counts of attempted illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and attempted illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance. After the 3rd District Court of Appeals upheld Hardin County's sentence of 90 days, Dellifield's lawyers appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court which refused to hear the case.

Dellifield was accused of texting a former student, who at the time was 16-years-old, asking for a picture of his genitalia. He sent two texts to the minor before apologizing the following day.

Upon his release, he will be on 5 years probation.
