CLEARFIELD – A 60-year-old Clearfield man accused of endangering the welfare of a child he was watching waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
Court documents state that on Jan. 28, Gerald Maines was watching a small child. After receiving a phone call Clearfield Borough Police officers arrived and noticed that Maines was visibly intoxicated. He was given a breathalizer test and was asked to leave, but refused until the child woke up. When the child was checked on it was awake and had a diaper full of old and new waste.
Maines is free on unsecured bail.
