[ARCHIVED] Gordonville Man Admits Sex Abuse of 7 Females, including 3 Minors

Trevor Wimer

A Gordonville man admitted Monday in Lancaster County Court to sex crimes against 7 females since 2012.

Trevor Bradley Wimer, 21, will be sentenced by County Judge Howard Knisely after completion of a background check, which will include psychological assessment and a determination as to whether he is a “sexually violent predator.”

Wimer abused 7 females, 3 of them being minors. Wimer asked the females, who were acquaintances, to meet with him, then he forced them into sex acts, according to Assistant District Attorney Christopher Sarno, lead prosecutor.

Wimer pleaded guilty Monday to 15 counts, including multiple counts of sexual assault, indecent assault, and unlawful contact with minors.

He faces up to 154 years in prison. State guidelines call for a minimum sentence of about 20 years. Judge Knisely has the option of ordering consecutive sentences on some or all of the counts.

Wimer asked the females, via text-messaging and social media, to meet with him, with the aim that the females would not have a ride home. He would often pick them up and bring them to his Gordonville home, or his former home in Warwick Township, according to Sarno.

He has been at Lancaster County Prison since April 2015.

Northern Lancaster County Regional police (Detective Eric Zimmerman) and East Lampeter Township police (Detective Joseph Edgell) filed charges.
