AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Probation has been extended for an autistic Akron man fixated on belly buttons.

Judge Mary Margaret Rowlands ordered Graig Burrier to attend an in-patient treatment program in Minnesota for sexual offenders followed by supervision at a halfway house there.

Burrier, 29, pleaded guilty to sexual battery in 2012 and received probation for attacking a 19-year-old pregnant woman in a stairwell and insisting he had to touch her belly button to pledge a fraternity.

Prosecutors wanted jail time saying he violated his probation because he continued asking to touch women's belly buttons.
