SAGAMORE HILLS, OH (WOIO) - The former president of the Nordonia Hills Board of Education who held police in a standoff back in September, was sentenced to 14 years in prison Wednesday. He also has to register as a tier 2 sex offender for 25 years after he's released.

Steven Bittel, 53, pleaded guilty to 19 charges including pandering obscenity involving a minor, pandering, illegal use of a minor in nudity, and obstructing official business. The obstructing official business came from the standoff at his home on Ballantrae Drive in Sagamore Hills.

Bittel was arrested on September 5, 2014 after officers found child pornography on his home computer.

Bittel was facing 31 years in prison.
