Warren David Young, 36, of Everett, PA, was sentenced to 48 to 96 years in State Prison following his March conviction on four counts of Rape of a Child, and related charges. On March 15th of this year, a Bedford County jury heard testimony from a preteen girl who described in detail multiple incidents where the defendant sexually molested her starting when she was 8 years old. He performed heinous sexual acts on her, and threatened to do worse if she ever told. Although she had attempted to tell her mother about the abuse, her mother ignored her cries for help. Eventually the young girl worked up the courage to tell a teacher and a guidance counselor, who in turn contacted law enforcement.

In June 2014, the defendant was arrested and charged with numerous counts of sexual offenses, the most serious of which were the four counts of Rape of a Child. Following the presentation of evidence, the jury convicted Young on all counts. As a result of the conviction, Young was ordered to be assessed by the State Sexual Offenders Assessment Board who ultimately determined that he meets the criteria to be labeled a Sexually Violent Predator. Today, District Attorney Bill Higgins successfully argued to have the court designate him as a Sexually Violent Predator. Accordingly, upon his unlikely release from incarceration, and for the remainder of his life, the law will require community notification to the following: the neighbors of the sexually violent predator, the director of Children and Youth in the county where the predator lives, the superintendent of the school district where the predator lives, every day care center in the municipality where the predator lives, and the President of each college and university located within 1000 feet of the predator’s residence.

Young will also be required to verify his residence every three months with the Pennsylvania State Police, and participate in counseling for the remainder of his life. “This sentence practically guarantees that Warren Young will never harm a child again, and will die behind bars. That is exactly what he deserves and it is the only way children can be protected from him,” added Higgins. The defendant, who has been incarcerated since June 3, 2014, was remanded to the Bedford County Jail, and he will be transferred to State Correctional System in the coming weeks. “Sadly, despite the jury verdict, the victim’s mother stands by this disgusting human being, and refused to bring her to court today. My heart goes out to this brave little girl for standing up to this creep. Although her mother failed her, I am proud to say that the Criminal Justice System did not,” concluded Higgins. –

  1. I am so proud to be part of a community where these acts are not only tolerated but where a perpetrator will be punished to the full extent of the law. We are most definitely blessed to have a judicial system in place that does not take serious offenses lightly and stands behind its citizens to do the best job that they can. It also helps that we are in a conservative area that holds so many lost values still close to heart. Thank you D.A. Bill Higgins, and PA State Trooper Martini. God Bless this child and help her get through the horrible ordeal. Her mother deserves some kind of punishment of failing her own flesh and blood.

  2. I am so thankfull to all envolved . No child should endure such a horrific experience. She is such a brave girl. Thank God for her father and step Mom who supports her 100 %. Parents should be a protector of their children, not putting them in harms way. What kind of Momster does?
