A former Lancaster County woman is wanted on charges she sexually abused a pre-teen girl in a West Hempfield Township home.
Nicole Fritchlee, 40, whose last known address was in Dallastown, York County, was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with minors. The incidents allegedly began when the girl was 7 years old and occurred between 2006 and 2008 at a house on Stone House Lane, West Hempfield.
A warrant was issued for Fritchlee last September when she apparently fled the area instead of facing charges. Now, she is on the lam again, according to the Lancaster County district attorney’s office, after skipping several recent court hearings.
Most recently, the district attorney said in a statement Thursday, Fritchlee didn’t show up for an April 22 arraignment. She also skipped preliminary arraignment and a preliminary hearing earlier this year.
A bench warrant has been issued for Fritchlee’s arrest.
She is believed to be with her 5-year-old daughter, who is considered a missing person, the district attorney said.
According to previous reports, Fritchlee is 5-feet 4-inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.
Officials said previously she was known to stay with friends in Landisville as well as other portions of York County, including Spring Garden Township.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts should contact Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Apprehension Unit at 723-4929.
Bail was never set in Fritchlee’s case because she never appeared for court, the district attorney said. A preliminary hearing was held without her, at which District Judge Miles Bixler ordered the four counts be bound for Lancaster County Court.
Thoughts? Not only is Nicole Fritchlee a rare female fugitive child molester, but she's on the run with her own daughter which puts her child at risk of being sexually abused as well. I didn't find any mention of what her daughter's name was since I'm assuming she has to be in an online database somewhere. Nicole seems like a really easy fugitive to locate, people just have to be aware of her case and do the right thing if they know where she is.
