AUGUSTA — A Farmingdale man pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual abuse of a minor, driving after revocation, telephone harassment and violating conditions of release, all of which occurred in 2015.

Jarrod Z. Standring, 31, was sentenced in a hearing at the Capital Judicial Center and ordered to serve an initial nine months and one day of a five-year term. He was ordered to serve two years of probation.

He will serve the sentence at the same time he serves a 33-month probation revocation on a 2009 conviction in Knox County on two counts of trafficking in scheduled drugs.

In exchange for Standring’s pleas, three felony charges of sexual abuse of a minor were dismissed. For the misdemeanor charge of sexual abuse of a minor, which says he was at least five years older than the victim when the offense occurred Jan. 20-Feb. 13, 2015, in Augusta, he also was ordered to register annually for 10 years under the state’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

The charge of operating after habitual offender revocation and violating conditions of release was based on an offense that occurred Feb. 17, 2015, in Winslow; and the harassment by telephone on Feb. 1, 2015, in China.

Standring also was fined $1,000.
