A 48-year-old Topeka man has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison for fleeing with and sexually assaulting a 14-year-old cast member in a Topeka community theater play. KSNT reports Michael Fitzgerald, of Topeka, was sentenced Monday to nine years and 10 months for sexually assaulting the girl in 2019. 

The then 44-year-old met the victim when she was 11, and they later performed in a 2018 Topeka Civic Theater play together. Friends of the victim said they observed an inappropriate relationship between the two before she went missing Jan. 22, 2019.  The two were found two days after she was reported missing in a hotel in Cortez, Colorado.
