Joseph Maggio, 24, entered a guilty plea to a felony count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. The plea agreement calls for a sentence of 4 to 8 years in a state prison.
Maggio will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
A sexually violent predator evaluation was then ordered, and sentencing will be scheduled on the completion of that assessment by the Sexual Offenders Assessment Board.
Maggio was charged with felony involuntary deviate sexual intercourse of a person less than 16 years old, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors, and misdemeanor indecent assault of a person less than 13 years old and endangering the welfare of a child after allegations that he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy in the summer or fall of 2016 at Butler Memorial Park.
Photos that appeared on Butler News in 2017 were also entered into evidence in this case, Maggio was blasted on Butler News for sleeping in bed with a then 9 year old girl. Maggio went as far as to for some idiotic reason state that he “only sleeps in bed with her” on Butler News. The pictures and the statement was turned over to the district attorneys office for review.
It is a good thing this man is gone, this guy is a danger to kids. When the first post was posted it attracted close to 1000 comments forcing the pervert to go into hiding as the town was so outraged.
Butler News has since removed the pictures of Maggio cuddling with this child in bed, due to the criminal investigation we agreed this was the best thing to do. Thank god this pervert is in jail, and doing 4-8 he will be in jail for most of his sentence. One can almost guaranteed he is getting his “wig split” in prison, and that will also be deserved.
