Clearfield County man accused of molestation will undergo mental competency evaluation

Clearfield – A Clearfield County man accused of molesting a young girl for seven years will undergo a mental competency evaluation at a state prison.

66-year-old Willie Hockenberry’s attorney requested the evaluation during Clearfield County Court proceedings Monday, and Judge Frederic Ammerman granted the request.

Hockenberry is facing charges of child rape, sexual assault, indecent assault, and indecent exposure for incidents that took place between 2013 and 2019.

Records show that Hockenberry has a history of sex crimes against young girls.

He was charged with a sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl in 1981.
