Father sentenced to jail after giving sex toys to minors.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A northern Michigan father will spend one year in jail for delivering sexually explicit material to a minor.

Phillip Darga admitted to giving sex toys to girls in Grand Traverse County

The incidents happened in January 2018 and April 2019. One of them was during a weekend event at Traverse City West High School.

Darga told the judge he's embarrassed about what he did, and that it would never come close to happening again.

"It wasn't something that I thought about for too long before I did it," said Darga. "I had seen and heard of the idea, and it came to me as what a fun thing to do I guess."

In addition to one year in jail, Darga was also sentenced to two years probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
