A former Quarryville man convicted of sex abuse of four girls got no break on his prison term when he appeared Friday for a re-sentencing hearing.
A Lancaster County jury convicted Michael Archacki in 2012 of 24 charges regarding sex abuse of the girls, who he befriended and hosted for sleepovers.
He was originally sentenced to 29½ to 65 years in prison. However, the case was ordered for re-sentencing because mandatory minimum terms – since deemed unconstitutional – were involved in the sentence.
On Friday, Lancaster County President Judge Dennis Reinaker sentenced Archacki to 29½ to 59 years in prison, according to Assistant District Attorney James Reeder, who handled the re-sentencing hearing.
All of the previous conditions still apply, including Archacki being considered a “sexually violent predator” and that he register his whereabouts with police for the rest of his life.
At trial, all four girls took the stand and testified of a similar series of events: Archacki befriended their family before he assaulted the girls at his Quarryville home.
Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman and other prosecutors around Pennsylvania continue to work with lawmakers to restore certain mandatory minimums, including those previously ordered for convictions of sex abuse of children.
