SUNBURY - A guilty plea proceeding for a Coal Township man charged with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in July was continued Monday afternoon to allow his attorney more time to obtain discovery evidence in the case from the district attorney's office.

The case involving Kevin C. Glazik, 35, of 510 N. First St., was continued until 1:15 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, by Northumberland County Judge William H. Wiest.

County public defender Melissa Norton requested the continuance, which was not opposed by First Assistant District Attorney Ann Targonski. Norton said she has been waiting for the commonwealth to provide her with discovery evidence in the case since October.

Glazik is charged by Coal Township Detective Jeff Brennan with felonies of aggravated indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor and a misdemeanor of indecent assault. Police said Glazik allegedly inappropriately touched an 8-year-old girl at his residence July 27.

At his arraignment before Magisterial District Judge John Gembic III of Shamokin, Glazik admitted to committing the crimes and apologized for his actions.

The defendant was released Oct. 1 from Northumberland County Prison in Sunbury on unsecured supervised bail granted by Gembic. He had previously been incarcerated in lieu of $75,000 cash bail since his arrest Sept. 10 and was instructed by Gembic to avoid contact with the victim and all minors without supervision and to enroll in a counseling group.
