A southern Ohio man has dodged what could have been another nine months in jail for sharing a Little Debbie snack cake with a fellow inmate.

The case involves 21-year-old Timothy Caudill, who last year was held in a residential community corrections program in Nelsonville for breaking into a bar. While there, prosecutors say he bought an oatmeal cream pie from a vending machine and shared it with a fellow inmate who wasn't allowed to eat the snack.

Prosecutors in Vinton County asked Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Simmons to revoke Caudill's probation and put him in prison for nine months.

Instead, Simmons says Caudill will spend 30 days behind bars and pay $1,500 for the jail stay.
