The incident happened in Wells Township, and Bensie was 19 at the time according to Bruzzese.

The assistant prosecutor said Bensie was sentenced to 10 to 15 years, and after he is released from jail, he must register as a Tier 3 sex offender.

There is also a co-defendant, but that case is in the juvenile court system.
