Man Faces Sex Charges | News
A man from Williamsport is facing sex charges.
Aaron Meixel 40, is accused of having sexual contact with three young girls, ages 12,11 and nine.
One of the alleged victims told her teacher she had been abused and that is what led to Wednesday's arrest.
Now police want to know if there are any more victims out there.
"I'm being framed by a 12 year old," said Meixel as he was led away from court in Williamsport, cuffed and headed to jail. Meixel molested a 12-year-old girl, showed an obscene picture to a nine-year-old girl and inappropriately touched an 11-year-old girl, according to investigators.
"I believe there's a possibility there could be more victims out there, and so I'd like to see if anyone who's become a victim or knows a victim to call the Williamsport Police Department," said Agent Kevin Stiles.
On Newberry Street in the city, neighbors said they always suspected Meixel might be up to no good.
"We started hearing rumors from the other neighbors and stuff. We're really close to the kids around here. It just breaks my heart to know our children were violated like that," said Bessie Snyder.
She and Kayla Fisher said just knowing Meixel is locked up they feel a lot better.
"I'm a lot more relieved at the fact they got him now, instead of waiting another two years," said Fisher.
Meixel is facing charges ranging from indecent assault to corruption of minors.
He is locked up and police in Williamsport urge anyone who may know of other victims to contact them.
