Mt. Pleasant man sentenced to 7 years for sexual abuse

A 50-year-old Mt. Pleasant man is sentenced to more than 7 years in prison for sexual abuse.

Allen Pego Senior will also face 5 years of supervised release after pleading guilty in January.

Evidence shows Pego knowingly sexually assaulted his victim as she slept on the Isabella Reservation in Mt. Pleasant.

Once arrested, officials say, Pego tried to obstruct justice by influencing witness testimony.
