Sex offender Robert “Bobby” Wintersteller, 45, of Belle Center, was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison, one year shy of the maximum under the law.
He was given four years for sexual battery, a third-degree felony carrying a maximum of five years, and the maximum 12-month sentence for fifth-degree felony gross sexual imposition and ordered to serve the sentences one after the other.
For more on the hearing, in which he defiantly denied the allegations of a relative, see Wednesday’s edition of the Examiner.
