Bellefonte man pleads no contest to giving alcohol to minors

A Bellefonte resident pleaded no contest Monday to a jail sentence for supplying alcohol to minors.

According to a press release, a minor reached out to police in 2012 to report that William Sweeley, 36, had provided her and other minors with alcohol at his residence. On several occasions, he offered the alcohol in exchange for inappropriate behavior.

Sweeley confessed to making “sweet, fruity drinks” for the victims, knowing they were below the legal drinking age, the release said. He pleaded no contest to 10 counts of corruption of minors — a first-degree misdemeanor for six to 231/2 months in the Centre County Correctional Facility.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 9, the release said.
