Mifflin woman sentenced

MIFFLINTOWN–On Monday, Vanessa Ciccolini, 28, of Mifflin, pleaded guilty to theft by receiving stolen property and was sentenced by President Judge Kathy Morrow to 16 to 54 months incarceration, followed by two years probation, according to District Attorney Cory Snook.

The ruling applied to two separate cases, one from 2015 and the other from 2017.

On the charges from 2017, Ciccolini was sentenced to 12 to 36 months for corruption of minors, followed by two years of probation for indecent assault with a person under 16-years-old. Ciccolini pleaded guilty to both charges in January. According to court documents, Ciccolini was charged for engaging in a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old victim on two occasions when she, herself, was 18-years-old.

Ciccolini was most sentenced to four to 18 months incarceration regarding her most recent guilty plea, which is set to run consecutive with the other sentence. According to court documents, Ciccolini was charged in 2015 with theft by receiving stolen property, theft by unlawful taking and scattering rubbish upon land/stream. After stealing a safe, as well as the money and jewelry inside of the safe, Ciccolini disposed of the safe in Northumberland County.

Ciccolini was committed to Mifflin County Correctional Facility (MCCF) on May 9, following the issuance of a bench warrant on May 2, due to Ciccolini not appearing for prior sentence hearings. Ciccolini remains in custody at MCCF and is expected to be transferred to Muncy State Correctional Institution at a later date.
