A 22-year-old Vandergrift man who had sex with a teen and made other young girls drink his blood was sentenced to probation on Thursday.
Jonathan Davis was convicted of having sex with a 14-year-old girl in the stairwell of a church. Police said he also sliced the wrists of three juveniles and drank their blood. He was 20 years old at the time.
Police say Davis orchestrated a "cult-like" group involving three juveniles and several adults in Vandergrift in the fall of 2014. He told police that, after licking each other's blood, he would call them his "bio-child" and he would be their "dad."
He said the role play was based off an online fantasy game.
Prosecutors sought jail time because Davis previously impregnated a 12-year-old girl and received probation in juvenile court, according to The Associated Press. Davis' attorney said his client has been receiving counseling since being charged.
A judge sentenced Davis to 10 years of supervised probation, two years of house arrest and is requiring him to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years.
