Man admits repeatedly sexually assaulting child less than 13 years old

Court Thursday that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a child. Jacob H. Striegel, 41, pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual act -- a class B violent felony punishable by up to 25 years in state prison.

Striegel was arrested in December after a Wyoming County sheriff’s investigation revealed he repeatedly raped and sodomized a child under 13 years old. He was later indicted and charged with two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child, a charged that carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. Judge Michael Mohun set sentencing for May 12.                                        Courtesy of the Batavia Daily News
