A 41-year-old East Deer man was ordered Wednesday to stand trial for allegedly sexually abusing a girl and boy in 2005.

Robert William Webster Jr. pleaded not guilty during his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

The sole witness said Webster forced him to have sex with a sleeping girl. The witness testified Webster then forced him to have sex with Webster.

The witness said Webster performed a lewd act in front of him on more than one occasion and that he was forced to watch pornography with Webster.

The boy said he told police about the abuse last month after he received counseling.

A public defender did not ask the witness any questions.

Allegheny County Police filed charges on Jan. 23. Webster has been in the county jail since Jan. 24 in lieu of $100,000 cash bond.

Webster is charged with rape, indecent assault, endangering the welfare of children, statutory sexual assault, sexual exploitation of children, showing porn to a minor, and six related charges. Brackenridge District Judge Carolyn Bengel ordered all 12 charges held to court.

The case was sent to Allegheny County Court for trial in May.
