Man gets prison for sexual abuse of teen girl


A Lancaster County man will serve up to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Freedom Dowlin, 20, of Ephrata, pleaded guilty Tuesday to four felonies in exchange for a sentence of 5 to 10 years in prison, plus two years of probation, the district attorney’s office said.

Dowlin was 19 when he assaulted the girl at a May 2017 party in East Lampeter Township.

He must register his whereabouts under Megan’s Law for the rest of his life, and he must pay $3,455 in restitution costs.

Dowlin also admitted to being drunk when he caused a January 2017 crash that seriously injured a passenger in East Cocalico Township.
