McKean County District Attorney Stephanie Vettenburg-Shaffer announced that, following a one-day jury trial at the McKean County Courthouse, Anthony Schoonover was convicted of indecent assault (victim less than age 16) and corruption of minors.

The charges stemmed from an investigation into the defendant’s actions against a juvenile female in Rixford in October 2017.

The case was investigated by Otto Eldred regional police chief Donald Nies. Assistant district attorney Jerry Grill prosecuted the case on behalf of the commonwealth. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 26.
