A sexual predator's appeal has been denied by the state court of Pennsylvania. According to Penn Live, Frank Yeager has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison for plotting prospective rapes. "I truly enjoy the hunt and cannot wait for my prize," he bragged in a diary entry fantasizing about attacking women.
Per court filings, Yeager entered a female realtor's office in Lehigh County's Upper Macungie Township before closing time in November 2012. He had targeted female Realtors for rape and had done research to develop his attack plan. Crime Online says he had a list of 200 women he was obsessed with.
Per Penn Live, Yeager asked the woman to show him a home. He went inside and turned off the lights and drew the curtains to wait for her. When she didn't come in, he made up a false story about a water leak that he wanted her to look into. She refused to go into the home with Yeager, and he left when a male colleague came.
Authorities believe that Yeager planned on raping the woman. Based on handwritten notes and photos found in his home and truck, police shared that Yeager deemed looking for victims as his "full time work," Penn Live reports.
Yeager pled guilty to an attempted rape charge in 2013. In his appeal, he argued that his legal counsel was ineffective. He said his lawyers should have gotten these notes and his own confession suppressed.
The court denied the appeal and the presiding judge characterized him as a "psychopath." Yeager has been sentenced to between 10 and 20 years.
