New court documents received by the WPMG newsdesk shows that David John Croyle will go before Armstrong County Judge Chase G. McClister this Thursday at 8:30 a.m.
Croyle, who was a former council member of Kittanning, was originally found guilty by 12 of his peers on January 10th, 2020. He was found guilty of IDSI person less than 16, unlawful contact with a minor for sexual offenses, and corruption minors. Coyle retained the criminal defense attorney Duke Geoge for his trial.
It is unknown if Croyle has or is currently filing for his state appeal with the Appellate Courts of Pennsylvania.
Court of Common Pleas judges typically follow a set list of sentencing guidelines, but they are allowed to drift away if necessary. Judges are not allowed to to sentence someone lower than the mandatory minimum sentence however.
Croyle faces two 1st-degree felonies, each of which could yield up to 20-years in state prison and a $25,000 fine. He also faces a 3rd-degree felony which could cost him up to an additional 7-years in state prison if he chooses to not appeal.
