Man Guilty of 1,000+ Sex Abuse Crimes Against Children

A central Pennsylvania man has been convicted of more than 1,000 counts of rape and related charges against two children.

Forty-one-year-old Edward Geier, of Milesburg, could be sentenced to life in prison when he returns to Centre County Common Pleas Court on March 18.

The Centre Daily Times reports
Geier was convicted Wednesday.

The investigation began when state police at Rockview found a child walking alone in the dark along Route 45 in August 2014.

That child accused Geier of four years of repeated molestation. A second child came forward in April with similar claims.

Geier was already a registered sex offender due to a 2001 indecent assault conviction.

Geier was convicted of 1,068 counts of rape, rape of an unconscious victim, statutory sexual assault and other crimes.
