Philipsburg man violates conditions of probation
Friday, October 5, 2012
BELLEFONTE - Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller reports that 68-year-old Dennis Reedy of Philipsburg, who had previously been sentenced for convictions of indecent assault, dissemination of explicit sexual materials to minors, and corruption of minors, was found to have violated the conditions of his probation yesterday.
After an hour-plus-long hearing, the commonwealth successfully established that Reedy had violated the conditions of his probation by failing to complete the sex offender treatment program, Project Point of Light.
His probation was revoked and he was remanded to a state correctional institution to serve a sentence of two to five years.
Reedy had been convicted of the above offenses in 2009 for having oral sex with a 16-year old-boy in a bathroom at the Nittany Mall, fondling a 13-year-old boy, and giving two boys a sexually explicit pornographic story he had written about all of them engaging in sexual activities together.
He had previously been determined to be a sexually violent predator and thus, has to register with Megan's Law for life and participate in counseling for life.
Stacy Parks Miller said, "This is why it is so important to follow these sexually violent predators diligently for life to ensure they are in compliance and not actively re-offending. If these guys will not accept and attend prescribed rigorous treatment, prison is the only place to put him so children will be safe."
