04 - 14 - 2011 Accused molester pleads no contest to added charges
(LS) A consecutive sentence would be requested for 63-y/o Earl Gentzel, Jr. by Mifflin Co. DA Steve Snook regarding a case where the Reedsville man is accused of molesting a 16-y/o boy back in 2008. Gentzel already faces other sexual assult charges from allegations he molested other boys as young as 14 back in the late 1990s. Gentzel pled no contest to the additional charges as he faces up to 20 years in state prison. Snook did say that the only good thing one could say about a case like this is that the defendant was willing to accept responsibility for his actions.
