Clearfield, PA – A 20-year old Glenn Richey man has been accused of having sex with a 14-year old girl while she was intoxicated in October. Harley Rothrock has been charged with six counts of statutory sexual assault, indecent assault on a person less than 16 years of age, and corruption of minors.
According to reports the victim’s mother told police the young girl stayed at a house on East Locus Street and was seen having sex with Rothrock. That witness also says that Rothrock apologized for the act, saying that it was “ very disrespectful” of them. Rothrock denied having any sexual relations with the girl but did acknowledge knowing the girl, saying they met at a local Sheetz and that she said she was 16-years old. He later admitted to police that he knew she was only 14. Rothrock also said his apology to the witness was just a way of “keeping the peace” since he was homeless at the time and needed a place to stay.
However, after a polygraph test he later admitted to having sexual relations with the girl after a party where he says he and the girl were intoxicated and smoking marijuana. Rothrock has waived his preliminary hearing and bail has been set at $50,000.
