Hummelstown man gets 10-20 years for sexual assaults

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Hummelstown man has been classified as a sexually violent predator under Pennsylvania's Megan's Law and will spend 10 to 20 years in state prison for sexually assaulting three boys.

Randy Scott Arnold, 40, must also spend 10 years on probation following his release, with conditions that prohibit his contact with minors and require him to undergo counseling for the rest of his life, according to the Dauphin County district attorney's office.

The sentence was handed down Thursday.

Arnold pleaded guilty in October to numerous charges involving sexual assaults between 2002 through 2013, when the three boys were between 11 and 16 years old.

Prosecutors said that when Arnold learned of the investigation, he tried to get one of his victims to recant by sending a video in which he begged the boy to lie. The boy turned the video over to police, and Arnold later admitted to his crimes.

Because he is a sexually violent predator, prison will notify residents that Arnold has moved into their neighborhood once he is released from prison. He will have to register his address for the rest of his life, and verify his address with state police every three months.
