A former Davis Besse nuclear plant engineer found guilty of

hiding information about the worst corrosion ever found at a U.S. reactor was sentenced Thursday to three years probation.

David Geisen,47, a former Perrysburg resident who now lives in Wisconsin, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Toledo.

Judge David Katz also placed Geisen on house arrest for four months and imposed a $7,500 fine.
