Judge Sentences White Man to Spend Time With Black Children

A white suburban Cincinnati man accused of shouting a racial slur at a group of black children and threatening to shoot them has been ordered to spend more time with black children as part of his sentence.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg ordered 36-year-old Michael Fluegeman of Mount Healthy to perform 100 hours of community service at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati or a similar organization.

A police report shows Fluegeman threatened a group of children in October when they were near his yard and he believed they had damaged his property.

He originally was charged with misdemeanor aggravated menacing but pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct.
