Clearfield County Man Facing Rape Charges


CLEARFIELD – Rape charges have been filed against a 29-year-old Clearfield County man.

According to court documents, Taylor English of Curwensville is accused of raping a teenage co-worker, and then threatening the victim and her family in the days following the alleged assault.

A report from Clearfield Regional Police claims the victim was forcibly raped by English behind a Lawrence Township hotel last summer. English is also accused of threatening to kill the victim and her family if she didn’t comply with his demands, or if she told anyone what happened.

Police say English has conceded that every detail of the victim’s statement is true, but he claims the sex was consensual.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for English on July 3rd.
