03 - 13 - 2014 Accused rapist has charges bound over to court after hearing
[LS] - Yesterday, rape charges & other offenses were bound over to court following the preliminary hearing of 19--y/o Gabe Sheaffer of Newport. During the hearing, the only witness testifying was the 22-y/o victim who was allegedly assaulted while she attended a party in Susquehanna township with several friends last June. She said she had several alcoholic drinks during the night & told the court she "got to the point where I was barely walking". That's when she was taken to a spare bedroom to sleep off the alcohol. She awoke while being assaulted & said she had all her clothes removed. She later overheard Sheaffer bragging about the incident to friends. Currently, Sheaffer remains free on $25,000 bail.
