A man charged with groping several women at a fitness center at Hill Air Force Base entered guilty pleas in federal court but won't do any prison time.

James M. Busby was charged in U.S. District Court with three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery for groping three women in November 2011 at the base's Warrior Fitness Center. At the time, Busby was a civilian doing vehicle maintenance for the Air Force's 75th Logistics Readiness Squadron. He also was a technical sergeant in the 419th Fighter Wing, a reserve unit.

At a sentencing hearing on Aug. 29, Magistrate Judge Robert T. Braithwaite ordered Busby's guilty pleas to the three counts be held in abeyance for 12 months. The judge also ordered that he pay a $550 fine.
