WILKES-BARRE — A man accused of child rape pleaded no contest in Luzerne County court.
Gary Machinshok entered the plea Monday.
The no contest plea means Machinshok does not admit guilt but can be sentenced as if he did.
Police say Machinshok and his wife Misty were trying to get a teenaged girl pregnant because his wife can no longer have children.
His wife’s case is still pending in Luzerne County court.
