FARGO - A Fargo sex offender could see his prison sentence cut short by about one year, the North Dakota Parole Board decided this week.

Joseph Gerard Gilbraith, 46, must undergo a review by the state's sex offender risk assessment committee, which will determine how likely his chances are to re-offend.

Pat Bohn, deputy clerk for the parole board, said Wednesday that if Gilbraith receives a minimum or moderate risk assessment, he will be released to a Fargo halfway house on March 22, 2010.

Originally, Gilbraith was sentenced in 2003 to serve nine years in prison for molesting a 14-year-old girl the previous year.
