Crump gets 3.5 years for sexually assaulting daughter's friend

KINGMAN - A 39-year-old man who assaulted his daughter's friend during a sleepover in February has been sentenced to 3-½ years in prison.

Judge Derek Carlisle had the option of imposing up to almost nine years in prison for Corey Lamon Crump but elected for the presumptive sentence of 3.5 years because of Crump's lack of prior offenses, weighed against the fact that he violated his position of trust as a father.

Prosecutor Megan McCoy said Crump was drinking with the girls and provided enough alcohol to his 16-year-old daughter and her four friends that they began passing out during the sleepover, which was held at Crump's apartment in the 3100 block of Harrison Street in February.

McCoy said one of the girls, who was sleeping in bed next to Crump's daughter, reported waking up to Crump assaulting her.

The girls called police in the morning.

Crump pleaded guilty to one count of attempted sexual assault in exchange for the dismissal of several other counts.
