FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 19, 2011

     The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, announced that Anthony William Corish, age 29, was sentenced today by United States District Court Judge John E. Jones, III. Judge Jones sentenced Corish to a 235 month term of imprisonment to be followed by a lifetime of supervised release and a $2,000 fine.

     U.S. Attorney Smith stated that the investigation and prosecution of the sexual abuse of children in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies and district attorneys remains one of the top priorities of the U.S. Attorney's Office. U.S. Attorney Smith praised the law enforcement officers for their investigation of Corish which resulted in the removal of a violent sexual predator.
