MORGANTOWN — A man who abused a maid at a Morgantown hotel will spend a year in jail.

On Feb. 14, Monongalia County Circuit Court Judge Susan Tucker sentenced Michael Shumaker to a total of a year in jail on misdemeanor charge of battery and unlawful restraint.

Tucker did not find that his crimes met the level of sexual motivation intended by the state legislature in its sexual offender registration laws. As a result, Shumaker will not have register.

Police charged Shumaker after a Springhill Suites housekeeper said he touched and kissed her without her consent as she cleaned his room. The employee also said Shumaker blocked the door to try to keep her from leaving the room.
