The man who crashed his car into the federal building in downtown Canton has avoided prison time in a Stark County courtroom, to get extensive mental health treatment.
The Canton Repository reports that 26 year-old Christopher McCormick was placed on two years probation during his sentencing Thursday.
Judge Lee Sinclair said McCormick's intensive probation will include mental health support and treatment at the Stark Regional Community Correction Center.
On May 5, McCormick crashed his car into the building and then took off his clothes and ran around the area according to police reports.
In court, McCormick said he was happy with the outcome, but also admitted he failed to keep his issues under control and didn't know what resources he had available to him.
