A Lancaster man will serve up to a decade in prison for sexual abuse of a girl – which the victim said she endured for years.
Louis Gianoukas, 39, pleaded guilty to three felonies and a misdemeanor regarding abuse of the girl, beginning when she was 13 (and Gianoukas was 36).
Lancaster County Judge Dennis Reinaker recently sentenced Gianoukas to 3 to 10 years in prison. Gianoukas must register his whereabouts with police under Megan’s Law.
Assistant District Attorney Fritz Haverstick, in a sentencing memo, said the abuse “wasn’t every day, but it was a lot,” quoting the victim’s report.
Gianoukas pleaded to felony counts of statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor.
ADA Haverstick asked the judge to impose a sentence in the aggravated range on the statutory sexual assault charge, and for a consecutive sentence on the corruption charge. The judge ordered both.
Lancaster city police Detective Jessica Higgins filed charges.
The abuse was disclosed after it stopped - when the victim was 17.
