Charges Against Ex-Sheriff Mason Bound to Court

Charges against former McKean Former McKean County Sheriff Brad Mason, who is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl who was a tenant at a rental home he owns in Bradford Township, have been bound to court following a preliminary hearing this morning. Mason appeared before visiting District Judge Glenn Carlson of Warren for an arraignment, followed by the hearing.

A state police news release says the “consensual sexual relationship” went on from December 6 of 2012 to May 12 of last year. He retired as sheriff in July.

Mason, who is 52 years old, is also accused of providing alcohol to the girl.

State police say the accusations came to light during investigation of an unrelated civil matter.

Carlson heard the case because of Mason’s relationships with the McKean County district judges.
