Man Allegedly Forced Teen to Perform Sex Acts

A 40-year-old Bradford man is accused of forcing a 13-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him at least 20 times between January and earlier this month.

Gerald Pope is accused of telling the girl she could not see her boyfriend unless she performed the act. Papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office say Pope would lie down on the couch or the floor, expose his genitals and require her to put baby lotion on her hands before performing the act.

Pope is charged with one felony count each of criminal attempt at involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and aggravated indecent assault with a person younger than 16; 20 counts of unlawful contact with a minor; 20 felony counts of corruption of minors; and 20 misdemeanor counts of indecent assault of a person younger than 16.

He is jailed on $20,000 bail and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for next Thursday.
