Mount Jewett Man Sentenced for Sex Crimes

UPDATED JUNE 2, 2022 (SMETHPORT): Kevin Brown of Mount Jewett has been sentenced by a McKean County Judge to a period of incarceration of 12 years to 24 years plus 3 years of consecutive supervision for crimes against two minor children.    

District Attorney Stephanie Vettenburg-Shaffer reports that Brown had previously been convicted by a jury of Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse; Indecent Assault; and other crimes.

The case was investigated by Trooper Neil Ginther of the PA State Police – Lewis Run barracks.  The sentencing had been delayed because, under Pennsylvania law, anyone convicted of crimes such as these is required to be assessed by the Sex Offender Board prior to sentencing.  Brown was determined to require lifetime registration under the law formerly known as "Megan's Law."
