Child Rape Suspect Pleads Guilty

Child Rape Suspect Pleads Guilty

Under the plea agreement Eric Crader will face 50-100 years in prison.
BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY – Eric Crader entered guilty pleas to 213 counts of Felony Rape of a Child on Thursday.

The 33-year-old Pleasant Gap man was arrested in late February after one of his victims told a guidance counselor at school she did not want to be hurt anymore.

The two girls, now ages 8 and 10, were victimized by Crader over a two year span. According to court documents the abuse happened almost every day after school.

Crader was named a Sexually Violent Predator following an assessment by the Sexual Offenders Assessment Board, and will be sentenced October 21, 2014. The Centre County District Attorney’s Office said Crader’s plea will come with a 50-100 year sentence.

In addition, Crader will be required to register under SORNA (formerly known as Megan’s Law) for the rest of his life.
