Man pleads guilty to sexual assault
By MARLO BARNHART
A Hagerstown man who is awaiting trial on a November robbery attempt and assault pleaded guilty Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court to the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl nearly a year ago.
Sean Jeffrey Thompson, 27, was sent back to the Washington County Detention Center by Judge Kennedy Boone, who ordered a pre-sentence investigation.
Thompson faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for the third-degree sex offense to which he pleaded guilty. In exchange for that plea, charges of fourth-degree sex offense and contributing to the delinquency of a minor were dropped.
