Bucks County man sentenced for sexual assault

A judge sentenced a Bucks County man for sexually assaulting a 72-year-old woman inside her Middletown home.

Twenty-year-old Patrick Dilks will spend 12-and-a-half to 25 years in prison.

He pleaded guilty to assaulting the victim during a burglary in October of 2015.

In a letter written to the court, the victim said she forgave Dilks but wanted him to learn there are "consequences to bad decisions."
