Man pleads to sexual assault of 14-year-old

CLEARFIELD — A Glen Richey man will spend time in state prison for having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Harley S. Rothrock, 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Clearfield County Court before Judge Fredric J. Ammerman to statutory sexual assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors. Harley was sentenced to one to three years in state prison with two years’ consecutive probation.

The charges stem from incidents in October at a Clearfield Borough residence.

According to police, the victim’s mother told them a witness saw her daughter have sex with Rothrock while they were together at her home.

When the victim spoke with investigators, she said she had previously had sex with him at a party while she was intoxicated and high on marijuana.

The victim also stated that when they had sex at the witness’s residence, she was also high.

Rothrock claimed he was intoxicated when they had sex, according to the report.
