Former Democrat Politician Rubbed 103-Year-Old Mother In Law’s Breasts To “make her feel good about herself”

A former Pennsylvania politician was convicted of a sex crime after admitting to fondling his 103-year-old mother-in-law’s breasts — “a stupid, harmless act” that destroyed his life, he said.

William Spingler, a former Radnor Township commissioner, was convicted on two counts of indecent assault on a woman he said he had known for 57 years, and who suffered from dementia, The Delaware County Daily Times reported.

“It was just something that I shouldn’t have done,” he told a jury Thursday.

The 75-year-old was arrested in December 2016 after a third alleged assault on the woman took place in a one-month span.

He denied a third assault took place and was found not guilty.

Spingler was once married to the victim’s daughter, who died in 2007, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He said the victim had lived with him for eight years before moving into a nursing center in Radnor.

The victim suffered from dementia but continued to recognize Spingler — until early December, when Spingler said she couldn’t identify him.

“I got nothing, no recognition out of her and I made the biggest mistake of my life,” he said.

Spingler said he touched the victim’s breasts for “shock value,” and so that she would react to his presence.

“I thought for shock value, you know, I could get her to say something, let her know I was there. I touched her breast. It was the dumbest thing I ever did, but I did it to get her attention and let her know that I was there.”

He did it again during their next meeting — to no avail. Both incidents occurred in the long-term care facility’s dining hall.

Spingler touched his mother-in-law’s breasts under a blanket that concealed the activity, witnesses said, according to the Daily Times.
