    PA - Crossing Guard Faces 1,000 Sex Charges

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,285012,00.html
    BERWICK, Pa. — A school crossing guard accused of molesting seven children was charged with more than 1,000 counts of sexual assault.
    Dale Hutchings was arrested Tuesday and charged with 305 counts of raping a child, 356 counts of aggravated indecent assault against a child under 13, and 356 counts of indecent assault against a child under 13.
    The assaults took place between 1998 and 2007, and all of the victims were under 13 when the attacks began, police said.
    Hutchings, of Berwick, worked as a crossing guard near Orange Street Elementary School. He also worked for the Berwick Area Ambulance Association and was a high school band booster.
    He was sent to Columbia County Prison on $300,000 bail.

    At first I thought - maybe he's a flasher...but then I read the article. 306 counts of rape - that is just insane!
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    What a horrible huge number of sexual crimes that Dale Hutchings committed against those children. I have no doubt that he didn't intentionally seek out that career so that he could sexually assault and victimize children. That is what some pedophiles do. He may have scarred many innocent children's lives, and this is an outrage! I hope he is given life--this is where we need a law for just these types of disgusting criminals. And, I hope and pray that those poor children and young victims can heal through therapy, family support, or what ever it takes. All of that creeps savings, the proceeds from the sale of all his belongings, including his house and car should go towards his victims. Then he should live his life out in prison. I am so tired of hearing the destruction these pedo perps wreak on children. Sorry if my anger shows, but life altering crimes like this against children drive me almost over the top.

    They dropped hundreds of charges on this guy. Here is what he ended up with, on which an appeal was filed on 07/21/2009.

    Dale E. Hutchings

    Housed: SCI Rockview
    Sentence Date: 04/01/2009

    Offense: 20 counts Involuntary Deviant Sexual Intercourse
    Sentence: 120 months - 240 months each count

    Offense: 1 count Aggravated Indecent Assault-Person Under 13
    Sentence: 60 months - 240 months

    Offense: 8 counts Indecent Assault-Person Under 13
    Sentence: 9 months - 60 months each count

    Offense: 5 counts Photograph/Film/Depict on Computer Sex Act-Child
    Sentence: 9 months - 60 months each count

    Some sentences are concurrent and some are consecutive. As the Docket Sheet is 368 pages and the Court Summary is 54 pages, I didn't take the huge amount of time it would take to try and figure out what the real sentence is. I have linked both documents below for anyone who wishes to review them.
