Another indecent sexual assault charge filed against David Stodghill

Another victim has come forward alleging to have been molested by David Stodghill from an incident that occurred in 1999. According to online documents, a preliminary hearing for Stodghill was held on August 18th to face charges of Corruption of Minors, Indecent Assault, and Aggravated Indecent Assault with a complainant less than 16 years old.

An anonymous source has told me that in 1999, Stodghill molested the victim, a 13 year old girl. She pressed charges, and when Stodghill learned of this quickly moved him and his family to Ocean City, Maryland, where they lived for 5 months until he was arrested and extradicted back to Cumberland County, PA to face trial. The young victim was too afraid to testify, and the charges were dropped. However, when she heard of the current charges facing Stodghill, she decided to refile the charges, which will now be heard in court.

A voice mail left with the Hampden Township Police officer handling this case, to confirm these details, was not returned by the time of this posting.
