GREENFIELD — Former Deputy Scott Roeger is required to take anger management classes as part of an agreement in which he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of battery and criminal mischief Thursday afternoon.

Roeger, 33, was sentenced to one year of probation in a plea agreement that covered all three Hancock County courts and four criminal cases against Roeger.

Three additional felony charges and two misdemeanors against Roeger were dismissed.

Roeger’s legal woes began last October, when a woman he’d been dating told police Roeger entered her home, uninvited, in the middle of the night and flew into a rage when he found another man there.

The criminal mischief charge to which Roeger pleaded guilty Thursday stems from the original case. Additional charges of intimidation, a misdemeanor, and residential entry, a felony, were dismissed.
