Nissley sentencing continued until August

The sentencing for a former Lower Dauphin School Board member convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage girl has been continued.

Rodney Nissley, 49, of Hummelstown, was scheduled to appear for sentencing in Dauphin County Court on Monday, June 23, but the hearing was continued until 9 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28 before Judge Andrew H. Dowling.

A jury found Nissley guilty of 10 of 13 charges against him in March, including four counts of aggravated indecent assault, three counts of indecent assault, corruption of minors, unlawful contact with a minor and indecent exposure.

Nissley will spend at least 10 to 20 years in state prison based on mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines.

Nissley was confined to Dauphin County Prison at the close of his trial on March 21, but was released on March 24 after posting $100,000 bail.
