RIDGWAY - A Johnsonburg man, Jonathan A. Schmitz, 19, of 19 Powers Ave., pleaded guilty in Elk County Court Friday to his part in the sexual assault of two teenage girls, allegedly picked up outside a St. Marys slumber party and forced to perform sexual acts with him and two other men. He was sentenced to serve four to 24 months incarcerated at Elk County Prison.
Charges of statutory sexual assault and indecent assault against Schmitz were dropped as a result of the plea bargain he accepted Friday.
