PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Circuit Court Judge Robert Krebs has sentenced a 23-year-old Moss Point man to a total of 30 years in prison, with five years to serve day-for-day for sex crimes against a 14-year-old girl.
In addition, Krebs ordered Stephen Michael Martin to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and have no contact with the victim as well as a witness in his case.
