A Gordonville man admitted Monday in Lancaster County Court that he had committed sex crimes against 7 women since 2012.

Trevor Bradley Wimer, 21, abused 7 women, 3 of which were minors. Wimer asked the women, who were acquaintances, via text-messaging and social media, to meet with him. His hope was that they would not have a ride home, and often, he would pick the women up and bring them to his Gordonville home or former home in Warwick Township, according to Assistant District Attorney Christopher Sarno. Then he forced them into sex acts, said Sarno, who is the lead prosecutor on the case.

Wimer pleaded guilty Monday to 15 counts, including multiple counts of sexual assault, indecent assault, and unlawful contact with minors.
He faces up to 154 years in prison. State guidelines call for a minimum sentence of about 20 years. County Judge Howard Knisely has the option of ordering consecutive sentences on some or all of the counts, and will sentence Wimer after he goes a background check that includes a psychological assessment and a determination as to whether he is a “sexually violent predator.”

He has been at Lancaster County Prison since April 2015.
