A McConnellsburg man has been ordered to state time for the 2012 statutory sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl.

Caleb Miller Koons appeared before Fulton County Court of Common Pleas Judge John R. Walker Tuesday, March 19, for sentencing in connection with criminal charges filed by Pennsylvania State Police last December.

Koons, most recently of Cloverleaf Court and formerly of Greencastle, was sentenced to 15 to 48 months in Camp Hill’s state correctional institution for one count of statutory sexual assault. The 21-year-old will also be required to undergo any necessary drug and alcohol treatment as well as sexual offender treatment. He is not permitted to contact the victim or her family.

Charges against Koons came to light after state police Trooper Ken Falkosky of the McConnellsburg barracks interviewed the girl last December. A Services for Children employee was onhand for one of the two interviews conducted by state police investigators.

The girl informed state police that Koons had been at her Mc- Connellsburg Borough home on a Friday night seven months earlier when she had other friends visiting. It is believed the incident occurred between May 25 and June 22, 2012.

Koons had previously slept at the residence several times, the affidavit said. However, on the evening in question, Koons is accused of touching the girl and having sexual intercourse while she was feeling under the weather and watching a movie in her bedroom, police said.

The affidavit mentions both the girl and Koons told police investigators the topic of sex came up in a discussion earlier that evening.
