Bradshaw man pleads no contest to third degree sexual assault, felony abuse of vulnerable adult charge is dismissed

YORK – Danny Coy, also known as Danny Volker (according to court filings), 64, of Bradshaw, has changed his plea in a case involving the sexual assault of a vulnerable adult in York.

Coy appeared in York County District Court on Tuesday.

He was initially charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult, a Class 3A felony, and third degree sexual assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Coy was 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 victim did not know Coy. It was also stated in the affidavit that the victim is disabled and receives special services.

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

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

He was 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. As part of a plea agreement the felony was dismissed and he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor.

Sentencing has been set for April 29.
