State police have charged a 26 year old Tower City man with a host of sex related crimes after reportedly having sex with a minor.
Trooper John Sleboda Jr., the investigating officer, reports that on the night of April 7th, Christopher Romberger and a 14 year old girl from Williamstown had sexual intercourse in a wooded area behind North Bellas Street in Tower City. He also tried to have the girl perform oral sex but she refused, and he also attempted to sodomize her, but was unsuccessful. Romberger is a registered sex offender.
Police say the girl had a picture of a man’s penis in her cell phone that was reportedly sent to her from Romberger.
Romberger admitted to police that he had sex with the girl, and that he’d known her for about ten years.
Romberger stands charged on counts of statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, unlawful contact with a minor, aggravated indecent assault, conduct relating to sex offenders and corruption of minors.
A preliminary hearing will be held soon.
