Brookville Behavioral Health, Inc. is surprised and dismayed by the recent charges filed against Glenn Tetro.

We are saddened by this news and our hearts go out to everyone involved and our community.

The allegations against Glenn Tetro occurred between 1994 and 1998, and predate the existence of Brookville Behavioral Health.

There are no allegations against Brookville Behavioral Health and we continue to work diligently to assure safe, clinical, high-quality treatment for adults, families, and children in the local community.

Tetro is facing 215 charges related to the alleged sex abuse of a young girl in Summerville two decades ago.

The charges were filed against Tetro on March 1 as part of a joint investigation conducted by Jefferson County District Attorney Jeff Burkett’s office and the Pennsylvania State Police.

According to a criminal complaint filed by Punxsutawney-based State Police Tpr. Weaver, the investigation was initiated after the female victim reported to police that she was sexually abused by Tetro on several occasions between September 1994 and March 1998 at a residence in Summerville Borough, Jefferson County.

Tetro was taken into custody on March 1 and arraigned before District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak in Brookville.

A preliminary hearing is slated for March 15 at 10:15 a.m. with Judge Bazylak presiding.

Tetro remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $500,000.00 cash bail.
