CLEARFIELD– The trial was called off for a Clearfield man accused of coercing a woman to have sex with him at her business after accepting a guilty plea.
William Scott Dimmick, 55, of Clearfield has been charged with terroristic threats; simple assault; harassment; and stalking.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, Clearfield Borough police received a complaint from a local business owner on March 4. The alleged victim said at approximately 11:30 a.m. Feb. 18, a male walked into her business and slammed the door behind him.
Upon looking at him, the alleged victim noticed the male was blocking the door and locking the deadbolt on it. The alleged victim said the male was wearing a black mask over his face, a jacket, gloves and dark pants.
The male said, “Get your clothes off and get in the back room,” the alleged victim told police. When he walked towards her, she recognized the male as Dimmick and called him by name; after conversing with her, he left the alleged victim’s business.
The alleged victim told police that at approximately 11:30 a.m. March 4, Dimmick returned to her business. When he noticed no one was inside the business, he allegedly locked the door behind him, saying, “Now, let’s go in the back room.”
The alleged victim said she told Dimmick no and unlocked the door; he allegedly locked the door and she unlocked it again. The alleged victim said Dimmick tried to coerce her into having sex and she told him no.
According to the alleged victim, Dimmick left the business but called her there several minutes later. He allegedly told her he was going to take her to the movies to see Fifty Shades of Grey and then back to his house to re-create the scenes.
He remains incarcerated at the CCJ in lieu of $25,000 bail.
