He was charged with criminal confinement and felony battery, and plead guilty in March 1993 to the battery charge.
Hosier served almost six years of an eight-year sentence in that case, and was released from prison in February 1999.
While in prison, he asked the court to reduce his sentence, saying his monthly counseling sessions were helping him so that "he better understands himself and is not likely to ever commit another offense of this nature or of any other nature."
