41-year-old Edward Geier has been convicted of 1,074 counts of sexual assault and molestation against two minors.

The paedophile raped his sister when she was a child and later raped his 13-year-old stepdaughter.

The jury took a few hours to convict Geier after his two-and-a-half day trial.

The stepdaughter, to which 1,068 of the 1,074 charges referred was found by police walking alone in the dar in 2014.

She told officers that she could no longer live with her stepfather.

On the 24th of February 2015 Geier was hit with a battery of charges before his sister came forward and told authorities about abuse which took place in 2003.

 Geier’s stepdaughter testified against him court.

Center County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said to see a child testify against their abuser was to have ‘a front row seat to bravery.’

For each count of rape, Geier faces up to 20 years in prison. He will be sentenced on 18 March.
