PROSTITUTION SENTENCES -- Two men who pleaded guilty to prostitution charges involving a 15-year-old boy in Cold Spring have been sentenced. Neither 56-year-old Kenneth Vilter nor 60-year-old Joseph Burton will have to serve any more jail time as long as they don't violate their probations. Otherwise, they each could serve up to a year-and-a-half in prison.
