This was one of the grossest crimes we’ve ever reported on. And we’re glad to say it ended in a guilty verdict. On Thursday evening the trial of Daniel Carney ended with a guilty verdict.
As we previously reported, the now-30-year-old man had been accused back in August of 2019 of sexually assaulting a bridesmaid in his wedding party at a Pennsylvania resort hotel, just two days prior to the nuptials.
