Clearfield County man’s sentencing for molesting young girl delayed until October


Clearfield – The sentencing of a Clearfield County man accused of molesting a young girl has been delayed until October.

66-year-old Willie Hockenberry is facing 24 various counts of rape, sexual assault, and indecent exposure for incidents between 2013 and 2019.

The sentencing phase of the case will be rescheduled for October once an evaluator has determined if Hockenberry is considered a sexually violent predator.

Hockenberry also faced charges of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in 1981.
