Man pleads guilty to forcing co-worker to disrobe

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to forcing a female post office supervisor to disrobe and walk nude before co-workers.

Lonnie Wilson, 61, of Jackson Township near Canton, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a sexual battery charge and was sentenced to two years in prison.

"Not in my wildest dreams would I ever think of abusing anyone," he told Summit County Common Pleas Judge Jane Bond.

He withdrew an insanity plea after reaching a plea agreement.

Wilson (pictured, above) told police he was trying to save the woman from Satan after he threatened her and forced her to parade naked at a mail-processing center Jan. 27.

He told investigators he was upset that a relative had not gotten a new job, and that they blamed the 43-year-old victim.

At the time, Wilson was four days away from retiring from the post office.

Prosecutors agreed to reduce a rape charge tied to forced touching to sexual battery and dropped other charges. Wilson also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor fleeing charge.
