LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Strasburg man will spend a year on parole and another year of probation for repeatedly harassing a woman he wanted for his bride.

Stephen S. Fisher, 59, may not have contact with the woman or visit her place of employment as part of his sentence, according to the Lancaster County district attorney’s office. He also was ordered to undergo mental-health treatment.

A jury convicted Fisher in August of harassment and defiant trespass. He was found not guilty of felony stalking.

Authorities said from Christmas Eve to mid-January, Fisher repeatedly visited a Strasburg store where the woman worked. He told her he loved her and would bless her with six daughters.

The woman is 40 years younger than him, prosecutors said.

Strasburg police served Fisher with a no-trespass order, which he broke. He went back to the store with flowers and repeatedly called the woman’s home.

He told investigators he wanted “a young girl to be his wife,” police reported.
