William Moyer of Cressona PA., claimed he was innocent of sexually assaulting the costumed park employee.  But the victim testified in court that “she had to do everything possible to keep Moyer’s hands off her breasts.  Moyer was found guilty of misdemeanor battery.  He must write the victim a letter of apology, serve 180 days probation, complete 50 hours of community service, pay $1,000 in court costs and undergo a mental evaluation.

Call him a “Minnie perv.”
