The homeless man who defaced an Olney synagogue last summer will serve a few more months in jail and undergo treatment for substance abuse.

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Thomas L. Craven on Friday sentenced 23-year-old Ian Jacob Baron to three years in prison, with all but 18 months suspended, for malicious destruction of property worth over $500 and ordered Baron to pay $24,000 in restitution to B'nai Shalom of Olney for vandalizing the synagogue with anti-Semitic epithets in July.

Craven also sentenced Baron to three years in jail with all time suspended for one count of race/religious property damage and 60 days in jail with all time suspended for each of three additional counts of malicious destruction of property for vandalizing two nearby residences with graffiti.
