Randy S. Arnold, pleads guilty in Dauphin Court Court to numerous charges of multiple sexual assaults involving three minor boys.  The Hummelstown man admitted to sexually molesting the boys from 2002 to 2013.  The boys were between the ages of 11 and 16 at the time.  The victims were assaulted one at a time and when they became older Arnold moved onto the next victim.  Police say none of the victims knew each other.

When Arnold learned he was being investigated by Hummelstown police, he tried to get one of his victims to recant by sending a video clip of himself begging the victim to lie so he would not go to jail. The boy turned the video over to the police.  Arnold later confessed his crimes to investigators.

Sentencing for Arnold is set for January 2014, following completion of an evaluation to determine if he qualifies as sexually violent predator under Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law.
