Santa actor sentenced for indecently assaulting child in central Pa.: police

A man who dressed up as Santa for venue events was sentenced earlier this year for indecently assaulting a minor in Adams County, according to state police.

John Paul Kruger, 58, of Hanover, received 11.5-23 months in the Adams County prison after he pleaded nolo contendere in March to indecent assault of a minor younger than 13 years old and corruption of a minor.

Nolo contendere means that a defendant accepts the conviction but does not admit guilt to the crimes they are accused of.

Kruger had contact with multiple children over the years as he played Santa Claus at different venues during the holiday season, according to state police. The incidents occurred from 2018-20, and the investigation began last year.

In June, Adams County Judge Thomas Campbell sentenced Kruger to prison as well as five years of probation, according to court documents.

Court records indicate Kruger was initially charged with two more offenses. According to the Gettysburg Times, Kruger was initially charged with an additional aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 13 years old and unlawful contact with a minor.

Prosecutors typically drop some charges against defendants who pleaded guilty without having to go to trial.

Anyone with information relevant to Kruger or the state police’s investigation should contact the state police Gettysburg barracks at (717) 334-8111.
