An Ashtabula county man has been arrested and sentenced for trying to lure an underage victim with chicken alfredo and Sprite.
Albert Maruna was arrested in December of 2017 in an Austintown sex sting. Maruna believed he was conversing with a 15 year old boy in an online chatroom. The underage victim was actually an undercover police officer.
Maruna and the officer arranged to meet together in Austintown. Maruna, in addition to bringing lube, told the officer he would also be bringing chicken alfredo and Sprite.
Maruna received 4 months of house arrest, and is required to register as a “Tier One” sex offender. Tier One sex offenders are required to alert their neighbors of their past conviction, and alert authorities of any residence changes/moves every year for 15 years.
