A former military agency supervisor from York County was ordered to do two months in prison after he admitted he sexually assaulted a woman at a government agency three years ago.

A federal judge sentenced Jared Heisey, 32, of Newberry Township, to two months in prison and five months of home detention, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Harrisburg said in a news release Thursday.

Heisey pleaded guilty to one count of assaulting a subordinate last November.

He was a supervisor with the Defense Logistics Agency when investigators alleged he had an employee help him count inventory in a remote building at the Naval Support Activity in Mechanicsburg in August 2019.

When they went inside, Heisey allegedly grabbed the employee’s neck, pinned her to a wall and made sexual comments, the release states.
