Girard man sentenced to prison for sex assault of young girl

William Casey will spend five to 20 years in prison

William Casey, 55, charged with rape.

MERCER, Pa. (WKBN) – A man from Girard who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl was sentenced Monday morning.

William Casey will spend 5 to 20 years in prison.

Investigators say Casey assaulted the girl repeatedly between 2014 and 2015 in Pymatuning Township.

The victim’s family said they wish Casey would have received a steeper sentencing.

“I believe that he deserved a little more time than that but at least he is locked up,” one family member said.

“As far as I’m concerned, he deserves life. If it would’ve been a case in Ohio, almost guaranteed he would have life in prison,” another family member said.

Casey was convicted in 2005 on similar sex charges and spent a year in prison.

His bond was revoked earlier this month after he gave authorities an incorrect address to where he was staying and tested positive for opioids, cocaine, and marijuana.
