Daniel Reynolds-Demchur, 22, a Megan’s Law sex offender, has pleaded guilty in the case where he after buying her a cell phone last April.
Delaware County Assistant District Attorney Joseph Lesniak recently told the Haverford-Havertown Patch during a phone interview that Reynolds-Demchur pleaded guilty to corruption of a minor and selling obscene/sexual materials.
Reynolds-Demchur, of the 200 block of Stanley Avenue in Havertown, was 21 at the time of when a then 16-year-old girl claimed that he gave her a cell phone so he could get in contact with her and that phone calls to her cell phone and house phone and text messages from him became increasingly sexual.
Even though Reynolds-Demchur was sentenced to two years in jail this past January, Lesniak said that he may serve up to five years because Reynolds-Demchur broke a parole condition that required him not to be in contact with minors because he is registered as a Megan’s law sex offender. The hearing date for his parole violation has not yet been set, Lesniak said.
Reynolds-Demchur is registered as a sex offender on the Megan’s Law website, which lists him as a sex offender for the next 10 years and his registration start date was June 11, 2008. His primary offense was “luring a child into a motor vehicle or structure,” the website stated.
Lesniak said that the 2008 case and Reynolds-Demchur’s medical and family history were mentioned in the soliciting case and were considered during sentencing.
Prior to his arrest, Reynolds-Demchur was getting treatment as part of his parole requirement and while incarcerated the treatment will continue, Lesniak stated.
“He was getting treatment when the crime happened,” Lesniak said about the 2011 case involving the teenage girl.
Patch left an email for Reynolds-Demchur’s defense lawyer Joseph Ratasiewicz for comment, but he has not yet responded.
