LUDINGTON — A 46-year-old Monroeville, Alabama man is scheduled for trial in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017 at the Mason County Courthouse.

Mark Alan Saporita-Fargo, 46, 5971 County Road 30, Monroeville, Alabama, was arrested May 29, 2016, by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office on felony charges of third degree criminal sexual conduct and habitual offender fourth offense. In July, 2016, Saporita-Fargo rejected a plea offer by Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola of 15-30 years in prison if Saporita-Fargo pleaded to one count of third-degree CSC, with the habitual status, and dismissing the second count. The sentence would have included restitution for his Alabama extradition and medical expenses for the victim, the prosecutor said.

Due to his habitual status, he now faces life in prison.

The trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday with Mason County Probate Judge Jeffrey Nellis presiding. Circuit Judge Susan Sniegowski has been recused from the case due to a conflict.

Saporita-Fargo is out of jail on bond, $25,000 cash/surety.
