YORK, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man arrested after a weeks-long manhunt in the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl has been sentenced to 3½ to seven years in prison.

The York Daily Record (https://bit.ly/2f5532R ) reports that 21-year-old Austin Craley pleaded guilty Monday to statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors and making terroristic threats, among other charges.

Authorities said Craley assaulted the teen and then showed up at her York Township home in the early morning hours of April 15 with guns he stole from his father, then threatened her mother’s boyfriend before fleeing. He was arrested May 3 at the York Galleria.

Recounting his actions to the judge, Craley said he had sex with the girl “and I was 19 years old, and she was 14 years old.”
