A Lancaster man already serving a state-prison sentence for drug-dealing will serve additional years for sexually assaulting a woman at his home in 2016.
Manuel Pagan Jr. was recently sentenced in Lancaster County Court to 7 to 20 years regarding a trial conviction in April to counts of aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault.
Pagan, 27, used force in sexually assaulting the woman at his East Andrew Street home on Nov. 29, 2016.
Pagan will serve the sentence in addition to a 2 ½-to-5-year term he’s serving for possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine.
At sentencing, Assistant District Attorney Fritz Haverstick said Pagan has an extensive criminal history, including crimes of violence such as aggravated assault, simple assault and riot.
Haverstick called Pagan a “menace to society” who has shown no remorse for what he did to the woman.
The victim, who knew Pagan as “Real Zona” – his musician title – testified at trial, along with an eyewitness to the sexual assault.
Lancaster County Judge Donald Totaro, who presided over trial, ordered the sentence.
Lancaster city police Detective Sgt. Jimmy Mummau, who filed charges, and two other Lancaster city police investigators - who previously dealt with Pagan – attended the sentencing hearing.
