Bradshaw man pleads not guilty to sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult

YORK – Danny Coy, also known as Danny Volker (according to court filings), 64, of Bradshaw, has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult in York.

Coy appeared in York County District Court this week for arraignment on charges of abuse of a vulnerable adult, a Class 3A felony, and third degree sexual assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Coy is accused of assaulting a vulnerable adult, after going to the individual’s apartment. According to the affidavit filed by the York Police officer who investigated the situation, the alleged victim did not know Coy. It was also stated in the affidavit that the alleged victim is disabled and receives special services.

Court documents indicate Coy, who was found nearby the location where the alleged assault took place, allegedly told the officer the incident happened as reported, but that “contact was consensual.”

Due to Coy’s not guilty plea, a jury trial was scheduled in the matter for mid-December.

If convicted, he could be facing a possible maximum sentence of three years in prison with 18 months of post-release supervision for the Class 3A felony and a year in jail for the Class 1 misdemeanor.

No further details of the case can be published due to its sensitive, graphic nature.
