chad-renningerCLARION, Pa. (EYT) – A Knox man, already serving up to nearly 32 years on multiple counts of indecent assault, was sentenced to up to 10 additional years in a second case involving child sex crimes.

Clarion County President Judge James Arner sentenced 35-year old Chad Aaron Renninger to a minimum of two years and a maximum of 10 years after a jury found him guilty of two counts of first-degree misdemeanor indecent assault of a person less 13 years of age on Wednesday, May 29.

Renninger, who is currently housed in SCI Forest, must also register annually as a sex offender for 10 years after his release from prison and go through sex-offender counseling.

The charges he was sentenced for on Wednesday stem from sexual offenses against juvenile(s) that occurred between the dates of January 1, 1997, and June 30, 2001, according to court documents.

Previous Case:

In a related case, court documents indicate that on Wednesday, June 6, Arner sentenced Renninger to a minimum of 15 years and 11 months and a maximum of 31 years and 10 months confinement.

He was found guilty of the following charges during a jury trial on Tuesday, March 27:

– Indecent Assault – Person Less Than 13 Years of Age, Felony 3 (17 counts)
– Indecent Assault – Person Less Than 16 Years of Age, Misdemeanor 2 (17 counts)
– Corruption of Minors, Felony 3 (two counts)
– Criminal Attempt – Invasion of Privacy – photograph, view, etc. intimate parts of other person, Misdemeanor 2 (five counts)

He was also required to register as a sex offender.

Renninger remains lodged at SCI Forest.
