Lititz sex offender arrested by human trafficking task force pleads guilty and sentenced to 4-8 years in prison

A Lititz sex offender arrested by the Lancaster County Human Trafficking Task Force pleaded guilty to six counts Friday in Lancaster County Court.

Sean Deemer, 55, of the 500 block of Golden Street, was sentenced to 4 to 8 years in prison followed by 5 years probation after he admitted guilt to charges on two counts following a undercover investigation that the FBI referred to the HTTF.

Deemer pleaded guilty to three counts of unlawful contact with a minor on each case.

The FBI, posing as a minor, referred an undercover text exchange between Deemer to the Lititz Borough Police. The investigation was then referred to the HTTF and an undercover detective began a second text message conversation with Deemer posing as another minor.

Several explicit and obscene messages and photos were sent and requested by Deemer.

Lancaster County Judge Margaret Miller handed down a sentence.

Assistant District Attorney Fritz Haverstick prosecuted the case and arranged the negotiated guilty plea.

Lititz Borough Police and Detective PJ Savage of the Human Trafficking Task Force filed charges on the leading role; The Lancaster City Police Department and Detective Jessica Higgins of the Human Trafficking Task Force filed charges on the second role.
