[ARCHIVED] Landisville Woman Back in Prison for Contacting Sex-Abuse Victim - Again

Rikki Salzman

A Landisville woman has again violated terms of her parole/probation for contacting the victim of a child sex-abuse conviction.

On Friday, a Lancaster County judge found Rikki Salzman – also known as Rikki Straley - was in violation of a court order regarding the 2014 conviction of institutional sexual assault, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor.

Also, in a separate charge, she was ordered to be tried on a felony count of failure to register as a sex offender.

In August 2014, Salzman was sentenced to periods of house-arrest, parole and probation for sexual abuse of a 17-year-old boy at a Millersville placement home.

Salzman, now 33, was banned from having contact with the boy, and required to register as a sex offender, under Megan’s Law.

A week after the sentence, a parole officer discovered the victim was staying at Salzman’s home. Lancaster County Judge Howard Knisely found her in violation of parole and jailed her for several months.

On March 18, a police officer found Salzman with the victim. She has been at Lancaster County Prison since then.

On Friday, Judge Knisely again found Salzman in violation of parole/probation terms, according to Assistant District Attorney Karen Mansfield, lead prosecutor. She will be sentenced after a background check is completed in about two months.

Regarding the failure-to-register charge, Salzman didn’t register a vehicle with police, as required. West Hempfield police Officer Robert Bradfield filed charges.

District Judge Miles Bixler, at a preliminary hearing Friday, ordered Salzman face the charge in Lancaster County Court.
