EUCLID, Ohio — An Ohio man who allegedly egged his neighbor’s house more than 100 times over the course of a year has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.

WGBA reports Jason Kozan, 31, was ordered to pay $1,000 in fines and received the probation after he egged the home from May 2014 to June 2015. The sentence came several days after Kozan pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of inducing panic.

He was initially charged with vandalism, menacing by stalking and aggravated menacing, according to Cleveland.com. He also faced jail time.

Throughout the process, Kozan has denied the charges.

“I guess for some reason, they couldn’t get a suspect so they had to do something to calm the media,” Kozan said. “Let the jury decide. I have my evidence, evidence against Euclid Police, and whatever evidence they have on me, well, that’s what the jury is for.”

Police say the eggs stripped paint on the house and caused notable damage. The neighbor has since moved from the home.
