BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - One person is in custody after having sex with a minor.

Anthony Pennington, 24, of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., was sentenced to 14 years behind bars and supervision for life after he admitted to traveling across states lines in May of 2013 to have sex with a 15-year-old girl.

During the incident, Pennington traveled from West Virginia to Pennsylvania to meet two girls, one of which he engaged in a sexual activity with.

His sentenced was increased after the judge discovered he was a repeat sexual offender. In 2010, he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl.
 
Pennington is currently being held at the Eastern Regional Jail.
