Clearfield County man facing child rape charges


CLEARFIELD — Charges of child rape as well as sexual and indecent assault have been filed against a 73-year-old Clearfield County man.

State Police say Edward McGuire Sr. of Morrisdale is accused of attacking a six-year-old girl in his home’s bathroom in August.

Troopers say McGuire admitted to having indecent contact with the child when they questioned him about the accusations last week.

Following his arraignment Wednesday, McGuire was taken to the Clearfield County Jail where he is currently lodged with his bail set at $150,000.
