EUCLID, Ohio — A man accused of pelting the Ohio home of a former neighbor with eggs more than 100 times over nearly two years has pleaded guilty to a charge of inducing panic.

Cuyahoga County court records show 31-year-old Jason Kozan pleaded guilty Thursday to the misdemeanor charge. He was charged in March with vandalizing Albert Clemens Sr.’s home in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid.

Kozan says earlier he wasn’t responsible for egging the house.

Kozan’s attorney, Anthony Bondra, said Friday that Kozan still maintains his innocence related to the damaging of the house. He declined to comment further pending Tuesday’s sentencing.

Authorities haven't said what motivated the attacks they say largely ceased after Kozan moved.

Clemens said the attacks damaged his home and kept his family on edge.
