Former Pirates pitcher Felipe Vazquez sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison for sexually assaulting teen

Former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Felipe Vazquez on Tuesday was sentenced to two to four years in state prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in August 2017.

Vazquez, 30, received credit for 23 months time served during a hearing before Westmoreland County Common Pleas Judge Scott O. Mears, according to Vazquez’s attorney Gary Gerson. The hearing began at 9 a.m. and lasted 1½ hours.

Mr. Gerson said the prison sentence is for the statutory sexual assault counts, and that Vazquez received concurring sentencing for all other counts.

“He’s been incarcerated 23 months today,” Mr. Gerson said Tuesday. “Eventually he will be transported to the Department of Corrections processing center in Camp Hill. In one month, [Vazquez] will be at his minimum sentencing eligible for parole, and, of course, he’ll have to have a parole hearing and things of that nature.

“The unknown is what Florida wants to do with his prosecution, and whether they want to do that sooner or later. I don’t know.”
