DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – With the election over, a federal judge has ended probation for an Ohio man who tried to rush the stage at a Donald Trump rally.

Judge Sharon Ovington’s Thursday order says she cut short a scheduled, one-year probation for Thomas DiMassimo based on his probation officer’s recommendation and without objection from the U.S. attorney’s office.

DiMassimo pleaded guilty in federal court in July to a misdemeanor count of illegally entering a restricted area.

At that time, he was sentenced to one-year probation and a $250 fine. He was also ordered to stay away from future Republican Presidential events.

DiMassimo was arrested on March 12, when he tried to rush the stage at a Donald Trump rally at Dayton International Airport.
