Dingman Township man gets prison for statutory sexual assault


MILFORD - Jonathan Machiavello, 27, was sentenced 3.5 years to 12 years in state prison for statutory sexual assault.  In Jnauary, a Pike county jury found Machiavello guilty on three counts for incidents that occurred in Dingman Township in the summer of 2014. 

The relationship was discovered by a parent of the then 15-year-old girl who promptly reported the matter to the Pennsylvania State Police.

First Assistant District Attorney Bruce DeSarro said “victimization takes many forms and in this case it came from a man in his mid-twenties taking advantage of a teenage girl and using that age difference to help facilitate these crimes.” 

Machiavello will be subject to Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law registration for a period of 25 years.
