No further jail time for domestic violence offender -- unless he blows probation

Scott A. Gaborko, 31, now of Lorain, was placed on community control for three years in connection with his guilty plea to domestic violence.

Woodruff said Gaborko also was sentenced to 90 days in jail at the discretion of his probation officer. That means if he does not follow the terms of his probation, his probation officer can automatically sentence him to jail without having to come before the court, Woodruff said. Otherwise he will receive no further jail time for the conviction.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office responded to the June 29 domestic disturbance at 4797 West Collins Road, Collins.

Gaborko and his wife had been arguing because Gaborko didn't want his wife to visit a relative she wanted to see, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

"Some pushing ensued. She fell down," Woodruff said.

Deputies saw abrasions on the victim's leg.

Gaborko later posted a $10,000 bond.

As part of a plea deal with defense attorney Tom Freeman, Woodruff agreed to recommend Gaborko be sentenced to no more than 60 days in the Huron County Jail on the work-release program.

"We're willing to drop the no-association (order)," Woodruff told Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway. "(The victim) is OK with it."

Gaborko's wife gave birth to a girl in October. The victim and her sleeping infant were in the courthouse hallway during the November plea hearing, waiting for the hearing to be completed.
