A Carbon County man, who previously pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault on his mother, was sentenced Tuesday in the county court to a state prison term.
Jason Michael Horvath, 30, of Lansford, was sentenced by Judge Joseph J. Matika to serve 22 to 60 months in a state correctional institution. The prison term will be followed by three years of state probation. When Horvath entered his plea on June 12, it was to the assault count, but mentally ill.
But before imposing the sentence Matika said, "This is one of those difficult cases".
