Man Who Got Over White House Fence Gets Time Served

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Maryland man arrested after getting over a White House fence last year has been sentenced to time served.

Dominic Adesanya of Bel Air, who was arrested Oct. 22, was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty in April to entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds. He will have to complete a year of supervised release and must stay away from facilities under Secret Service protection, including the White House.

Adesanya's attorney, Jonathan Jeffress, has said his client was suffering from schizophrenia.

Online court records show Adesanya is still facing charges in two prior cases. He has a previous unlawful entry charge at the White House on July 27 and allegedly assaulted police officers while trying to enter the U.S. Treasury building July 30.
