A 30-year-old Mercer man could spend 80 days in jail if he complies with terms of a deferred judgment agreement.

Jason Sheehan pleaded no contest to theft, disorderly conduct, and battery Wednesday. If he stay out of trouble during the probation his most serious charges-- human trafficking and false imprisonment will be dismissed.

According to court documents, Sheehan was accused of forcing a deaf woman with a neurological disorder to eat mold, drink urine and eat cat feces. The victim told authorities Sheehan hit her with a hot baking ban, threw boiling water on her, and hit her with an electric fly swatter.

The agreement consolidated two criminal cases.
