HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A man was found guilty on Friday by a Dauphin County jury of aggravated indecent assault and other charges.

According to the testimony, the victim has Asperger’s syndrome and the mental capacity of an 8-year-old.

Harrington, 43, was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent exposure and corruption of minors.

Sentencing in the case has been set for December, pending the results of an evaluation to determine if Harrington is a sexually violent predator under Megan’s Law.
