Victor Hare, convicted in Korbin Rager’s death, loses court appeal

A state court rejects Victor Hare’s conviction


SUNBURY – The state Superior Court has thrown out the conviction appeals of Victor Hare, the man convicted in the 2014 Oxycodone overdose death of nine-year-old Korbin Rager.  Northumberland County DA Tony Matulewicz tells us, the court upheld Hare’s 2015 conviction for drug delivery resulting in death, involuntary manslaughter, recklessly endangering another person, and endangering the welfare of a child.


Hare’s attorney argued, there was insufficient evidence to support the convictions and Hare’s acquittal on two charges should have negated the possibility of a conviction on others. Hare is serving a 23 to 50-year jail term in state prison.  Hare was charged with providing the drug to the boy and indecent sexual content with Rager.


The DA reiterated today, Point Township police Chief Josh VanKirk and the township police conducted a flawless investigation. The DA said, “It is time for Victor Hare to face the fact that he will probably spend the rest of his life in prison for his disgusting crimes.”


Hare said at sentencing the corruption in this county is bad and he will be taking his case to the state senate. He said Rager was a thief and a pill taker.
