June 7, 2019 – After a three-day jury trial and testimony from eight witnesses, 51-year-old David Nunley of Sunbury was found guilty of multiple counts of sexual assault against three minors, including rape and gross sexual imposition.
Nunley was charged in February 2019, after an investigation by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.
“No child should have to endure being a victim of sexual violence,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Melissa Schiffel. “I applaud the victims for speaking out and thank the Sheriff’s Office for a thorough and professional investigation.”
Nunley was found guilty of five counts of rape – all first-degree felonies, attempted rape – a second-degree felony, gross sexual imposition – a third-degree felony, gross sexual imposition – a fourth-degree felony, and endangering children – a first-degree misdemeanor. The crimes occurred from December 1, 2009 through June 1, 2016.
In addition to the above charges, Nunley still faces a ruling on six sexually violent predator specifications. Those specifications will be ruled on by a judge next Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 10 am. After the judge’s ruling, a sentencing hearing will be set.
