Yukon man pleads guilty to child rape charge

Tuesday, July 30, 2013, 7:59 p.m.
 

A Yukon man pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges that he repeatedly raped an 11-year-old girl.

Michael August Neff, 46, is expected to be sentenced to five to 15 years in prison and another 10 years on probation under terms of a plea bargain approved Tuesday by Westmoreland County Judge John Blahovec.

According to court records, Neff forced the girl to engage in various sex acts between October 20, 2011 and Dec. 4, 2011. Police said Neff plied the girl with cigarettes and alcohol during the assaults.

He pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges rape of a child, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault and corruption of a minor.

Blahovec said he will impose the terms of the plea bargain in about three months, after Neff is evaluated by the state's Sex Offender Assessment Board to determine if he is to be classified as a sexually violent predator.
