Drug Dealer Sent to State Prison for Sexual Assault of Teen Girl

November 15, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Kristin McElroy, 215.348.6336, kmmcelroy@buckscounty.org

A Bristol Township man was sentenced Monday to serve 18 months to five years in state prison for sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl who had gone to his house to buy marijuana.

Gary Griffith, 44, of the 5800 block of Emilie Road, admitted assaulting the girl in a shed behind his house, where the two had gone to smoke marijuana.

Griffith pleaded guilty June 6 to aggravated indecent assault, and possession with intent to deliver drugs. He is awaiting trial on an unrelated driving under the influence charge.

In addition to the prison sentence, Bucks County Judge Raymond F. McHugh sentenced Griffith to a consecutive two years of probation. Griffith also is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The assault occurred on Nov. 22, 2015, when the victim walked to Griffith’s house to buy marijuana, according to a probable cause affidavit. She told police that she had purchased the drug from him five or six previous times.

The two walked to a shed in Griffith’s back yard, where they smoked the marijuana and Griffith offered the girl vodka. He asked the victim, “When do you turn 18?” as he placed his hands down her pants and penetrated her vagina with his finger, the affidavit said. The victim told him to stop, but he did not.

Griffith then placed the girl’s hand on his penis and asked her to perform oral sex on him, according to the affidavit. She refused and left immediately.

Confronted later by police, Griffith admitted to the assault and that he sold marijuana to adults and juveniles in the area. He said that he bought the drugs from a friend of his son, and said that he allows his children to use illegal narcotics, the affidavit said.

McHugh ordered Griffith to have no further contact with the victim or her family.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Kristin McElroy and investigated by Bristol Township Police Detective Douglas Slemmer.

Approved for release by Matthew Weintraub, District Attorney.

    The District Attorney is the main law authorization officer in the region. The DA is chosen by general society like clockwork, and is viewed as a line officer.

    real estate photo service USA  The numbers of similar crimes are getting increased around the area and the authorities should have a serious look at those numbers. More strict punishments should be given to such criminals. Anyway thanks for sharing the news regarding the case here.

    Shocked to see the number of crimes and deaths reported by newspapers and online sites on a daily basis. The world has become a very dangerous place to survive and requires a defined skill set in order to strive. Came to know about the cases through the blog. Big Apple Medical Broken Foot Scooter
