Chester man convicted on child rape, related charges

MEDIA COURTHOUSE – A Chester man was convicted on rape of a child and related charges Thursday for sexually abusing a young girl between October 2017 and March 2018. “The sexual abuse of children is always deeply disturbing – and it is all the more so when it occurs with the knowledge and tacit consent of the child’s parent,” said Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer in a release announcing the verdict. “As the jury’s quick verdict in this case demonstrated, this defendant’s actions were utterly unconscionable. In the face of his abhorrent actions, I must commend the remarkable bravery of the two children who – with the invaluable assistance of the staff at the Children’s Advocacy Center – stepped forward to tell their story.”
