Sex Offender Waives Hearing

A 44-year-old convicted sex offender from Port Allegany waived his preliminary hearing this morning on charges that he sexually abused a 5-year-old boy in January.

Charles Kontz was left alone with the child on the afternoon of January 31 when the sexual assault happened. The boy’s grandmother told police she has seen significant changes in the little boy since the incident, including his fear of men and wetting the bed, according to papers filed in District Judge Bill Todd’s office. According to court papers Kontz was alone with the child for 10 to 15 minutes.

Kontz is charged with indecent assault, endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor. He was convicted in 2003 for indecent assault of a child.

Kontz remains in McKean County Jail on $50,000
