Steven Castner

A 41-year-old man who assaulted his ex-girlfriend and then repeatedly threatened, stalked, and harassed her, even while he was in Bucks County Correctional Facility, was sentenced Monday to 16 ½ years to 35 years to state prison. 

Steven Jeffrey Castner, of Philadelphia, was convicted by a Bucks County jury in June on two counts each of intimidation of a witness and stalking and one count of attempted burglary, criminal trespassing, terroristic threats, and simple assault. 

Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley sentenced him to seven to 14 years on the intimidation of witness count; four to 10 years on attempted burglary; 3 ½ years to 7 years on the two stalking counts; one to two years for terroristic threats; and one to two years for simple assault, all running consecutively.  

 Finley said he handed down the aggravated sentence because of the escalation of Castner’s criminal actions, which he continued even while he was on state parole and in county jail.
