A western Pennsylvania man who served at three Lancaster County churches in the 1990s and early 2000s has been charged with repeatedly sexually abusing a teenage girl and exposing himself to two other children where he now lives.

William J. Stonebraker, 50, of Altoona, was charged June 22 in Blair County with two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and 96 counts each of unlawful contact with a minor, aggravated indecent assault, child endangerment and corruption of minors — all felonies. He’s also charged with 96 counts each of indecent exposure and indecent assault, which are misdemeanors.

Stonebraker’s attorney, Thomas M. Dickey, said Thursday that Stonebraker has pleaded not guilty to all charges and they’re awaiting details of the accusations.
