Man pleads guilty to having sex with 9-year-old in Sharon

Posted: Updated:
Mercer Co. -

A man who investigators say repeatedly raped a Sharon girl as young as 9-years-old faces a sentence of 7 to 14 years in prison.

Jordan Parks pleaded guilty this week to one count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.

The 23-year-old man from Hartstown in Crawford County, Pa., was arrested last April.

The district attorney agreed not to prosecute Parks on ten other counts as part of the plea deal.

The allegations date back to 2010, when police say the alleged victim was only 9-years-old and Parks was sixteen.

The girl told investigators the incidents took place from 2010 to 2012 at two addresses in Sharon, as Parks was supposed to be babysitting.

She said that she and Parks used to smoke marijuana, drink, and have sex.

Mercer County Children and Youth Services and Sharon police worked together on the investigation.

Parks will be sentenced later.
