STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Polk Township man has been sentenced to 21 to 41 years in state prison for the rape of a girl and for burying a baby's body after the girl performed a home abortion.

Thirty-one-year-old Michael Lisk was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to rape of a child, statutory sexual assault and concealing the death of a child.

Authorities said Lisk impregnated the Monroe County girl in 2009 when she was 12. They said the girl told them she attempted an abortion on herself and the baby was stillborn. Police said Lisk took the fetus and buried it in the woods near his home.
