Vega sentenced


An accused serial rapist in Lehigh County has been sentenced for one of his assaults on an elderly woman.

John Vega, 29, of Slatington was found guilty in August of attacking a 77-year-old woman in Schnecksville in 2008.

He will now spend the next 30 to 64 years in state prison.

Vega had originally pleaded guilty to rape charges in 2010, but he withdrew that plea.


He is still facing charges of raping elderly women in Northampton and Carbon counties.
