YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A Cambridge Avenue man was sentenced Tuesday to over 21 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to sex crimes.
Andrew Strickland, 27, received a sentence of 262 months in prison from U.S. Judge Patricia Gaughan in the U.S. Northern District Court of Ohio on a charge of sexual exploitation.
