Man Charged With Giving Fake Name to Police Waives Hearing

JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – A man who reportedly gave police a fake name during an investigation in Winslow Township waived his hearing in court on Tuesday.

Court documents one count of third-degree misdemeanor false identification to a law enforcement officer filed against 37-year-old William Joseph Wolf, of Coudersport, was waived for court on March 30.

The charge has been transferred to the Jefferson County Court of Common Pleas.

Wolf is currently lodged in the Jefferson County Jail on $5,000.00 monetary bail.

The charge stems from an incident that occurred in November of 2020.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, on November 23, 2020, DuBois-based State Police were requested to assist with a retail theft investigation at a business on U.S. 322 in Winslow Township.

At the scene, police began gathering information, speaking to a suspect who was later identified as William Wolf.

According to the complaint, when asked for his name, Wolf initially gave a false name and even provided the same information a second time after being specifically warned that he would face charges if he used a fake name.

The complaint notes police also discovered Wolf had warrants out of Cameron County, and he was subsequently lodged in the Jefferson County Jail on the outstanding warrant.

One count of third-degree misdemeanor false identification to a law enforcement officer was filed against Wolf through Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office on February 10.
