Guilty plea proceeding in Coal Twp. sex assault case continued
SUNBURY - A guilty plea proceeding for a Coal Township man charged with sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in July was postponed for the third time Monday to allow his attorney more time to review the case.
Public defender Melissa Norton, who represents Kevin C. Glazik, 35, of 510 N. First St., was granted the continuance by President Judge William H. Wiest. No date has been set for the next step in the case.
The proceeding was previously continued in December and late January at Norton's request because she said she had not received discovery evidence from first assistant district attorney Ann Targonski.
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 the 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.
The defendant was released Oct. 1 from Northumberland County Prison, 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. He was instructed by Gembic to avoid contact with the victim and all minors without supervision and to enroll in a counseling group.
