JOHNSTOWN, Pa. – A resident of Windber, Pa. has been sentenced in federal court in Johnstown to two years (24 months) in prison and two years’ supervised release for violating conditions of supervised release, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Paul Marone, 40.
According to information presented to the court, Marone was on supervised release from a conviction in 2012 in the Western District of Michigan for violating Title 18, United States Code Section 2423(b), by traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
Marone was on supervised release for the same conviction in 2015 when Judge Gibson revoked that release for similar conduct. In 2015, Marone was sentenced to 24 months in prison and five years’ supervised release for violating the terms of release by possessing ten cell phones and using them to communication with minors.
On February 7, 2020, Marone was again revoked for violations of his supervised release for enticing, coercing a minor to engage in sexual activity, and using an electronic device to communicate with a minor for the purpose of promoting sexual relations with a child.
Assistant United States Attorney Maureen Sheehan-Balchon prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
