Md. man sentenced on sex assault

April 15, 2004

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Baltimore man convicted of molesting a young girl was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to from two to 10 years in state prison and will have to register with police everywhere he lives for the rest of his life.

Chambersburg police last year charged James F. Skovron, 31, of 7807 Hidden Creek Way, with rape and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. On Dec. 19, 2003, he pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent assault, a second-degree felony. In exchange for his plea, the more serious charges were dismissed.

According to court records, Skovron had sexual relations with an 11-year-old girl between October 2001 and September 2002. At the time, he lived in Chambersburg, according to the criminal complaint.

Judge John R. Walker made Skovron subject to the lifetime registration provision of Pennsylvania's Megan's Law. After he is released from prison, he is required to register with municipal or state police whenever he changes addresses.

In the sentencing order, Walker also wrote that Skovron must be incarcerated in a state prison other than the one in which the victim's father is serving a sentence.
