San Diego-based EMT to be sentenced in underage sex case

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – An EMT who pleaded guilty to having sex with an underage girl he met online was expected to be sentenced Tuesday morning.

Back in April, 24-year-old Zachary Stinchcomb pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. He faces probation and as much as one year in jail.

Stinchcomb, according to court documents, met the girl on a site called meetme.com and pretended to be 17 years old. After an exchange of text messages, the two eventually met face to face and developed a relationship that became sexual in nature.

The relationship ended, however, when the girl met a boy at her school and cut things off with Stinchcomb.

The victim asked Stinchcomb for a ride to school in January, but he instead drove off to another area and forced her to have sex with him. The company that employed Stinchcomb suspended him after learning of the allegations.
