Case details:

According to a criminal complaint filed by Punxsutawney-based State Police Trooper. Weaver, the investigation began 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.

According to the criminal complaint, Tetro was working at a local youth facility as a counselor at the time of the alleged sexual assaults.

Most of the alleged abuse occurred within the Summerville residence; however, the victim said that two of the incidents occurred inside a Michigan home.

On February 20, 2018, around 11:30 a.m., the victim contacted Tetro and carried on a 19-minute phone conversation with him. During the conversation, Tetro allegedly indicated that he was sorry for what he had done, according to the criminal complaint.

Tetro was taken into custody on Thursday, March 1, 2018, and arraigned at 5:10 p.m. before District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak in Brookville.
