LUDINGTON — A 46-year-old Monroeville, Alabama man rejected a plea offer of 15-30 years in prison Tuesday, July 19, in 51st Circuit Court, and now his case is headed to trial.

Mark Alan Saporita-Fargo faces two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) with a fourth-offense habitual offender designation. Due to his habitual status, the maximum penalty for his charges is life in prison, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Saporita-Fargo was arrested May 29 by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office and is currently lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $25,000 cash/surety bond.

Spaniola offered a plea agreement 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.

A trial date has not yet been scheduled.
