A Rocky Grove man has been sentenced to up to two years in the Venango County Jail for the sexual assault of a 12 year-old girl.
18 year-old Jesse Whetzel was also ordered to serve three years probation.
Whetzel entered a guilty plea to a charge of statutory sexual assault by a person 4-to-8 years older than the victim, in exchange for the dismissal of other charges.
He was accused in an incident in which he allegedly molested a girl who was part of a Rocky Grove skating party. Police said the incident occurred in January at a residence on Fox Street.
