Man Waives Hearing in Sexual Assault Case

CLEARFIELD – A man accused of sexual assault waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during Centralized Court at the Clearfield County Jail.

Donald Thomas Reid, 22, of Philipsburg has been charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and statutory sexual assault. He’s incarcerated at the CCJ in lieu of $50,000 bail.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Feb. 9, 2013, the alleged victim received a call from Reid at approximately 3 a.m. Reid asked how she was doing and if he could come over to her Decatur Township residence.

The alleged victim agreed and Reid arrived at approximately 5 a.m. They were sitting on the couch and talking in the basement. While there, Reid allegedly inappropriately touched and performed unwanted sex acts on her.

During interviews in June, Reid admitted to engaging in consensual sex acts with the alleged victim. He also acknowledged he was aware that the alleged victim was 13 years of age at the time.

In another case, Michael B. Curtorillo, 42, of Philipsburg had his preliminary hearing continued until Sept. 3. He’s been charged with simple assault, terroristic threats and harassment.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, on June 14, state police received a report about a domestic violence incident in Decatur Township. Upon arrival the alleged victim told state police she and her husband, Curtorillo, had engaged in a verbal altercation over money.

During the altercation, she became upset and threw a box of Lego blocks against the wall. At that point, she alleged Curtorillo got off the couch and grabbed her by the throat and told her he was going to break it.

The alleged victim said she and her husband “wrestled around the house” until he put her through their wooden kitchen table, breaking it. The alleged victim sustained bruising to her right, upper back.

Afterward, Curtorillo fled the residence; the alleged victim said she locked the front door. Upon locking it, she realized her husband was returning and hid inside a closet. She called her sister.

Then, the alleged victim said Curtorillo broke the glass out of the front door to re-enter the residence. Upon arrival the alleged victim’s sister said Curtorillo was in the kitchen and stated, “If your sister would have hit me, her teeth would be knocked on the floor.”

Curtorillo fled the residence again after that.
