Man sentenced after fathering baby with teen

A 36-year-old man who fathered a baby with a young teenager has been sentenced to 9 1/2 years in prison. Anthony John Ciccotelli of Zephyrhills was arrested in 2005. He was 32 then, and met a girl he knew was 15, according to authorities. They dated for several months. She became pregnant and later gave birth to a boy. Ciccotelli was set to face trial next week, but last month pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious battery. He will become a registered sex offender.
