Sexual assault charges against an Oil City man were bound to McKean County Court at a preliminary hearing Thursday before District Judge William Todd, according to court records.
Jonathan L. King, 20, is charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, a first-degree felony; statutory sexual assault: 4-8 years older and aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 16, second-degree felonies; and indecent assault of a person less than 16 years old, a second-degree misdemeanor.
According to the criminal complaint, on March 15, Port Allegany Borough Police received a report that King had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.
The girl told investigators that King knew she was only 14, and that after they had sexual intercourse, he told her that she could not tell anybody because he did not want to go to jail or lose custody of his daughter who he had with another woman in Oil City, the complaint alleged.
The complaint stated that the girl did not report the assault sooner because she was scared of what King would do to her.
King is free, having posted $50,000 bail.
