A Spring Grove man has been sentenced to prison for having indecent sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl at a Chanceford Township pool party.

Justin Alexander Moody, 27, was sentenced Tuesday to 11½ to 23 months in York County Prison, plus two years of probation, and given 138 days' credit for the time he has already served, according to court records.

Common Pleas Judge Maria Musti Cook also ordered Moody to have no contact with the girl and to complete sexual-offender treatment, records state.

He pleaded guilty April 15 to the misdemeanors of indecent assault of a child less than 16 years old and corruption of a minor, according to court records.

Moody fondled a 13-year-old girl on May 25 and 26, 2019, at a pool party they both attended, according to state police.

Court documents state that the girl accompanied her friend and her friend's family members to the pool party at a home on Scout Camp Road near the intersection of Wild Game Lane.

While there, Moody followed her around and offered her marijuana, and when the girl told him she was 13, he replied, "Do you know I'm twice your age?" documents state.

The girl told troopers Moody kissed her, rubbed her breasts and touched her genitals under her clothing, according to court documents.

The father of the girl's friend confronted Moody three times at the party about following her around, police said.

During a police interview, Moody admitted to kissing the girl and fondling her over her clothing only, according to court documents.

His defense attorney, Farley Holt, declined comment Thursday afternoon.
