WILLIAM MORECK II

BY STACI WILSON

A Laceyville man admitted inSusquehanna County Courton Friday that he exposed himself to teenage employees at a local convenience store and also engaged in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old.

William Moreck II, 24, pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent exposure and one count of statutory sexual assault in two separate cases brought against him in June.

Moreck had also been charged with corruption of minors after police found him in the bedroom of a trailer, Aug. 1, in Auburn Twp. with a 14-year-old, a violation of his bail conditions.

District Attorney Jason Legg said that he had agreed to withdraw the corruption case in its entirety as part of the resolution of the two cases that were before the court on Friday.

At a preliminary hearing held at Montrose District Court in June, two juvenile females testified that Moreck had flashed his genitalia to them on multiple occasions while they were working at Flynn’sStoneCastle, a convenience store in Rush Twp. One teen was 15-years-old at the time of the occurrence, the other was 17-years-old.

Moreck faces up to two years in prison on each indecent exposure count.

He also faces up to 10 years on the statutory sexual assault charge. According to Legg, Moreck began a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old juvenile female in October 2011.

As part of the plea agreement, the sentences handed down to Moreck will run concurrent. He is scheduled to be sentenced in Susquehanna County Court on Sept. 20.
