A Knox man was sentenced Tuesday in Venango County Court to two-to-ten years in state prison for inappropriate contact with a woman he was visiting last winter.

In a plea bargain, 62 year-old Steven Carpenter had entered a guilty plea to a charge of aggravated indecent assault.

The victim, a Franklin woman, said the incidents occurred while Carpenter was staying with her boyfriend and her in early December.

Carpenter will be given credit for nearly ten months already served.
