Sigel, PA – A Sigel man allegedly sexually assaulted a young girl, and now he is facing felony charges.

The victim reported that she was inappropriately touched by 40-year-old Daniel Held at a home in Eldred Township, Jefferson County, last November.

Police say Held originally denied it but allegedly later admitted to sexually assaulting the girl.

Held is facing felony charges of corruption of minors when over the age of 18, plus unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He also faces misdemeanor charges for indecent assault of a person less than 13 years old.

Held is lodged in the Jefferson County Jail after he was unable to post $25,000 monetary bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 15.
