Court Gavel

A federal judge in West Virginia sentenced a Monessen man to more than 8 years in prison Monday for traveling across state lines to have sex with a juvenile.

Mark Sassak Jr., 38, began exchanging messages with someone he believed to be a 15-year-old girl. According to a press release from the Department of Justice, they conversed for several weeks before Sassak asked to meet in person to have sex.
