Southern Illinois Navy Man Admits Sexual Misconduct with Teen
Thirty-year-old Matthew Staszak, a religious programs specialist, pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Benton to sexual exploitation of a minor and traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. He also pleaded guilty to missing a court date.
Authorities say Staszak was stationed in North Carolina, but had sexual relations with a southern Illinois teenager from February 2011 through May of last year. The exploitation charge accused him of filming his contact with the victim.
Staszak agreed to forfeit his vehicle and register as a sex offender. He has remained jailed without bond since his June arrest. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 6.
