Man Sentenced for Sexual Assaults

An Emporium man will spend the next two to six years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman and a teenage girl in separate incidents back in June.

33-year-old Adam Eckert supplied alcohol to an 18-year-old girl from Kane and a 16-year-old girl from Emporium, and then assaulted the 18-year-old between 10 o’clock on the night of June 26 and 2 a.m. on June 27.

Then at about 2:30 on June 27 he broke into a woman’s bedroom and sexually assaulted her. She chased him from her bedroom with a nearby hatchet.
