BROOKVILLE — Summerville resident Glenn Tetro waived his right to a preliminary hearing before Judge Gregory Bazylak Tuesday afternoon on charges of rape, sexual assault and more.

Tetro, a co-founder of Brookville Behavioral Health, faces nine counts of rape, 34 counts of rape victim less than 13 years of age, nine counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, nine counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse victim less than 16 years of age, 34 counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse victim less than 13 years of age, 34 counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse victim less than 16 years of age/perpetrator four or more years older, nine counts of statutory rape, 34 counts of statutory sexual assault, nine counts of indecent assault perpetrator over 18 years of age/victim less than 14 years of age and 34 counts of indecent assault victim less than 13 years of age.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, the victim came to police earlier in 2018 and reported regular sexual abuse at Tetro's hands over the course of approximately four years in the mid-90s.

Police interviewed both the victim and another witness, and received court documents indicating suspected sexual abuse claims against Tetro.

In February, police had the victim contact Tetro via telephone. During a conversation approximately 19 minutes in length, Tetro reportedly apologized for what he had done and made other references to his alleged behavior.

During a second phone call a week later, the victim asked Tetro if he remembered specific acts he allegedly committed; police said that he responded in the affirmative.

The case will now go to the Court of Common Pleas.
