Former WHUN-A & WQHG/HUNTINGDON, PA weekly Country show host PAUL "TED" REINHART has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal sex charge. He was also fined $25,100 and given a year to pay that amount.
REINHART, 76, who hosted a long-running show with his wife and singing partner, RUTH, pleaded guilty last AUGUST to a charge of transporting a minor across state lines for purposes of sex. A charge of making "visual depictions" of the sex acts was dismissed as part of the plea agreement. Subsequent attempts to have the plea thrown out failed. REINHART faced up to a 30 year sentence for the charges.
