Dominican man jailed in elevator molestation case could be deported
A man who pleaded guilty to forcing a sex act on a victim with intellectual disabilities while they were riding in an elevator in Derry Township will be spending the next 2 1/2 to 6 years in state prison.
And after he’s done serving that time, Francisco Castillo-Pena’s sex crime convictions likely will result in his deportation to the Dominican Republic, Chief Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gettle said Wednesday.
The final call on deportation is up to the federal government.
Dauphin County Judge John F. Cherry imposed the prison term under an agreement Castillo-Pena reached when he pleaded guilty to charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and sexual assault in October.
Gettle said Castillo-Pena, of Lebanon, was charged with molesting the victim, an adult male acquaintance, in December 2014. She said the victim’s family agreed with the plea deal and wanted a resolution to the case.
