Man Accused of Sex Crimes, Burglary Due in Court on Thursday


PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (EYT) — A Punxsutawney man accused of having sex with a minor after an incident that allegedly occurred this summer at a skate park in the borough is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.

According to court documents, 19-year-old Daniel Jablonski, of Punxsutawney, faces the following charges in a preliminary hearing at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 7, in Magisterial District Judge Douglas Robert Chambers’ office:

  • Statutory Sexual Assault, Felony 2
  • Aggravated Indecent Assault With a Person Less Than 16 years old, Felony 2
  • Indecent Assault With Person Less Than 16 Years of Age, Misdemeanor 2
  • Corruption of a Minor, Felony 3

Jablonski remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail on $50,000.00 cash bail.

Details of the sexual assault case:

According to a complaint, Punxsutawney Borough Police Officer Brian Andrekovich was notified by Jefferson County Children and Youth Services that a victim had consensual sexual intercourse with Daniel Jablonski in August or September 2017.

The victim was then interviewed by Pat Berger of Western PA Cares for Kids on November 2. The interview was video- and audio-taped and submitted to Officer Andrekovich. The victim said she began speaking with Jablonski during the summer of 2017. At this time, she told him she was 14 and he told her he was 19. They both spent time together before Jablonski allegedly began talking to her about sexual matters and requests, the complaint states.

The victim said she agreed to meet with Jablonski at the skate park to have sex. Both walked behind the skate park into a wooded area near a gas well. She laid down on a jacket of his, and they proceeded to have sex, the complaint indicates.

After they were done, Jablonski told her to leave the woods first, so “no one would see them together.” The victim told Jablonski that she wouldn’t tell anyone about it, according to the complaint.

The victim later told her sister and a friend what happened, and she was afraid she would be pregnant, the complaint continues.

Jablonski is currently facing other charges involving another sexual relationship with a minor. They include drug possession, corruption of minors, and child endangerment.

In addition, Jablonski is facing burglary, criminal trespass, and related charges from a November 1, 2017 incident.
