100 Sexual Assault Charges Filed Against Elk County Man


WILCOX – A total of 100 criminal charges have been filed against an Elk County man for the alleged sexual assault of a teenager.

According to court documents, 52-year-old John Hodgdon of Wilcox is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl last October and taking dozens of pornographic photos of the victim.

The victim told State Police that Hodgdon took her to a dirt road area just off Route 219 in McKean County to look at the stars. The girl claims that Hodgdon gave her a beer, assaulted her, took photos while she was naked, and then gave her $56 in cash and told here to,“keep her mouth shut.” Multiple forensic DNA tests on the victim’s clothing have also linked Hodgdon to the attack.

Hodgdon will be formally arraigned on the charges on May 16th. He is currently being held in the McKean County Jail with bail set at $750,000.
