[ARCHIVED] VERDICT: Jury Convicts Lancaster Man of Sex Abuse of 2 Girls


A Lancaster man was recently convicted of sexual abuse of two girls in 2013 and 2014.

A Lancaster County jury deliberated about 70 minutes before returning guilty verdicts June 7 to all charges against 35-year-old Crizon Kingsberry.

Five of the charges are felonies, including rape of a child. Lancaster County Judge David Ashworth, who presided over the trial, will order sentence after a background check is completed.

Assistant District Attorney Fritz Haverstick presented evidence at the four-day trial of three incidents of abuse at a West New Street home.

Haverstick called the two victims, police, and others to the witness stand to testify. Lancaster city police Detective Aaron Harnish, who filed charges, was one of the witnesses to testify.

Kingsberry is at Lancaster County Prison on $500,000 bail. He did not testify at trial.

In all, Kingsberry was convicted of rape of a child, unlawful contact with a minor (two counts), statutory sexual assault, corruption of a minor (two counts), indecent assault of a child, and indecent exposure.
