CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Fayetteville, Pa., man charged with sexually assaulting his wife pleaded no contest Wednesday in Franklin County Court to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
The 65-year-old man, whose name is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim, was scheduled for sentencing in May, after undergoing a sexual offender's assessment.
"I'll allow this to go forward. I'm not putting my stamp of approval on it yet," Judge Carol Van Horn said of the plea agreement.
The judge expressed concerns about the proposed sentence of 11 1/2 to 23 months of house arrest with electronic monitoring, sexual offender treatment and 10 years on probation.
