Parma probation officer accused of having sex with probationer

A Probation Officer for Parma Municipal Court pled not guilty at his arraignment Monday for having sex with a woman on probation. Michael Maresh, 25, faces two counts of sexual battery.

Maresh is also a Corrections Officer for North Royalton.

Prosecutors say on June 21, 2012, Maresh had non consensual sexual conduct, with a 32-year-old female victim, at her North Royalton residence. The victim was reporting to the defendant as a Probationer on a previous case.

The judge set bond at $10,000 and also ordered Maresh to take an HIV test.
