The terms of the agreement stipulate that Canfield must refrain from any new criminal conduct and undergo mental health counseling to include sex offender evaluation and treatment. If he follows the agreement, the unlawful sexual assault charge will be reduced to an unlawful sexual touching charge, a misdemeanor. He will then be sentenced to 364 days in jail, all suspended with one year of probation. If he does not follow the terms of the agreement, he will face opening sentencing for the charges.

Canfield is still prohibited from having any unsupervised contact with anyone under 18 years of age, one of his bail conditions from when he was arrested in July 2018.

He was arrested by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and charged with gross sexual assault July 5. He made his initial court appearance in Knox County Unified Court July 6 and was released on $5,000 cash bail from the Knox County Jail.
