Middleburg man sentenced, will register as lifetime sex offender


LEWISTOWN – A Middleburg man was sentenced Friday for having a sexual relationship with a juvenile victim. The Lewistown Sentinel says 31-year-old Joshua Martin will serve two to five years in state prison. He’ll also be a registered sex offender for life.


Martin was also sentenced to serve three years probation and must pay more than $320 in restitution to pay for the victim’s counseling.


The sentencing comes after Martin pleaded guilty in October to one felony count of statutory sexual assault and one felony count of unlawful sexual contact with a minor. The incident was reported in December 2017 when Lewistown state police interviewed the victim who reported having a sexual relationship with Martin from October to December 2017.
