Merwin had been indicted for felony assault and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.

Under a plea agreement, he will be out of jail on interim probation for ten months until his scheduled sentencing in January. An order of protection has also been issued for the victim.  If he abides by his release terms, Merwin could avoid a prison term.
