FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a girl from the time she was 6 has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Mark Schluter, 53, of Frederick was sentenced Tuesday in Frederick County Circuit Court.
The News-Post of Frederick reports that Schulter’s lawyer said in court that his client was remorseful and agreed to the plea deal to help keep the victim from testifying.
