    PA - Man gets 10 - 20 for Child Sex Case

    CLARION - A former Shippenville man will serve 10 to 20 years in state prison in a Clarion County child sex abuse case.

    John A. Coy, 55, was sentenced Wednesday on felony charges of sexual abuse of children - photograph/film a child, unlawful contact with a minor and endangering the welfare of children and misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and corruption of minors.
    "I deeply regret the pain, the inconvenience and the embarrassment this has been on my family," he said.
    Clarion County President Judge James Arner issued the order and said Coy has been determined to be a sexually violent offender according to Megan's Law following an evaluation.
    Allegations were that he took nude pictures of a 13-year-old girl and exposed himself to her.
    The crimes were reported to have occurred between September 2004 and January 2006 at a Sligo residence where the victim had lived with her mother, who was dating Coy.
    "This is one of the most heinous crimes in our society," Arner said. "You showed a total lack of concern for the child and only for yourself."


    Coy will receive credit for 328 days time served.
    He also apologized for the time and cost to the county.
    District Attorney Mark Aaron prosecuted the case, and Coy was represented by Menu during the April 24 trial held before Arner.
    Coy had been the subject of a Pennsylvania Crimestoppers initiative and was taken into custody in September 2006 in Arizona.
    The county's Children and Youth Services agency and state police became involved after the alleged victim told a cousin about the incidents.

    Hmmm. I didn't see any apology to the girl mentioned in that article. Just to HIS family and to the county.

    He needs to be behind bars till he dies.

    Yea and he is only sorry because he got caught. I didn't see any appologies prior to that? Lock him up and throw away the key along with all the other child molesters.

    If he is a violent sex offender, this is not nearly enough time. His apology missed the point, didn't it?
