SCRANTON — Child sex charges will send a former corrections officer from Lackawanna County to jail.

Stephen Cardamone was sentenced Tuesday morning to 12 to 30 months in the same jail where he used to work.

He pleaded no contest to the charges in November.

Police said the man gave cigarettes to a 16-year-old girl in exchange for sexual favors and exposed himself to another.

It happened at Cardamone’s house in Clarks Summit between May and October of 2007.

    This is a perfect example of preferential treatment He was a former deputy sheriff at the prison whose father was a captain of SPD. This pedophile sexually assaulted two minors, one was his niece, should have a Megan’s Law sign in his yard and more severe punishment.

    12-30 months? Is that standard for pervs? Or is it because he is an “upstanding” officer of the law, and they’re low-life prisoners? Don’t get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for law enforcement who uphold the law, and I can’t hold a candle to them. But at the end of the day, it’s what you are, not who you are that matters!
