YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A convicted sex offender will spend the next six years in prison.

Ronald Gibson, of Youngstown, was sentenced in Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas on Thursday. When he’s released, he’ll have to register as a Tier 3 sex offender.

Gibson pleaded guilty in November to voyeurism, gross sexual imposition and sexual battery. Rape and sexual imposition charges were dismissed.
