Police: Hempfield man fondled 15-year-old girl

Renatta Signorini

A Hempfield man remained behind bars Saturday on state police accusations that he fondled a 15-year-old girl two months ago.

Daniel Michael Yohn, 43, is charged with corruption of minors, indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor.

Troopers said in court papers that Yohn inappropriately touched the girl in June. Another person told investigators the pair were alone for a few minutes at one point during the evening.

The girl reported the situation to her mother the following morning, police said. Yohn admitted to “wrestling around” with the girl, but denied touching her in a sexual manner, according to court papers.

He was arrested Wednesday. Yohn is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $250,000 bail.

He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. An Aug. 23 preliminary hearing is set.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
