CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to spend between 11 1/2 and 23 months in the county jail on charges he sexually molested two girls.
Mark Edward Brunk, 45, of 5147 Church Road, had pleaded no contest in March to charges of concealment of the whereabouts of a child, indecent assault and statutory sexual assault. On Wednesday, however, he changed his pleas on the concealment and statutory sexual assault charges to guilty during his sentencing hearing before Judge Carol Van Horn.
"You were 44, she was 14," Van Horn told Brunk, referring to one of the victims. "She cannot consent to a sexual relationship."
Pennsylvania State Police charged Brunk in three different cases involving two girls. One case involved his sexual relationship with a girl in 2005 and 2006 when she was 14 and 15 years old, according to court records.
