A 62-year-old man was convicted on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, of indecent assault and related charges for inappropriately touching an 11-year-old boy in Newtown Township in September 2021.
Jeffrey Todd Lukens, of Buckingham Township, had been working as a contractor at the boy’s home and was hired to remove bees from the basement. He inappropriately touched the boy while working on the project on Sept. 2, 2021, and again four days later when he returned to finish the job.
On Wednesday, following a 3-day trial, a Bucks County jury found him guilty on felony counts of indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age and unlawful contact with a minor, along with misdemeanor counts of corruption of minors, indecent assault, invasion of privacy and disorderly conduct and summary harassment.
Common Pleas Judge Raymond F. McHugh deferred sentencing for 30 days.
