After a three-day jury trial and testimony from eight witnesses, 51-year-old David Nunley of Sunbury was found guilty this month of multiple counts of sexual assault against three minors, including rape and gross sexual imposition according to a press release from the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office.

Nunley was charged in February 2019, after an investigation by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.


“No child should have to endure being a victim of sexual violence,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Melissa Schiffel. “I applaud the victims for speaking out and thank the Sheriff’s Office for a thorough and professional investigation.”

Nunley was found guilty of five counts of rape – all first-degree felonies, attempted rape – a second-degree felony, gross sexual imposition – a third-degree felony, gross sexual imposition – a fourth-degree felony, and endangering children – a first-degree misdemeanor. The crimes occurred from December 1, 2009 through June 1, 2016.

In addition to the above charges, Nunley still faces a ruling on six sexually violent predator specifications. Those specifications will be ruled on by a judge next Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 10 am. After the judge’s ruling, a sentencing hearing will be set.
