A former FBI analyst has been sentenced for having sex with a young Spotsylvania County girl.
Forty four year old Anthony Lesko entered an Alford Plea to the charges in a Spotsylvania County Circuit to nine counts of felony indecent liberties upon a child.
The plea means that Lesko does not admit guilt but believes that there is enough evidence to convict him. Lesko was sentenced to seven years in prison with 15 years suspended under a plea agreement.
Lesko was also ordered to pay 10 thousand dollars in restitution to cover the girl's mental health counseling. According to police Lesko was engaged in nine sexual encounters with the girl, starting when she was nine years old.
According to the plea Lesko says he was the victim in the case and that the girl initiated the contact.
