Terrizzi Waives Hearing in Child Pornography, Sexual Assault Case

CLEARFIELD – A Frenchville man has been accused of producing pornography of and sexually assaulting a girl he was babysitting.

Anthony J. Terrizzi, 56, has been charged by Trooper David Patrick of the Clearfield-based state police with felony aggravated indecent assault-complainant less than 13 years old and photograph, film, depict on computer sex act, plus misdemeanor indecent assault person less than 13 years of age.

Terrizzi waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court at the Clearfield County Jail. For this, his bail is currently set at $50,000.

The charges stem from incidents that occurred between Dec. 29, 2017 and Dec. 20, 2018 at the victim’s Clearfield County residence, according to the affidavit of probable cause filed with the office of Magisterial District Judge Jerome Nevling.

Terrizzi was left alone to babysit the 10-year-old girl on several occasions, and allegedly used a cell phone to produce pornographic images and videos of her.  On one occasion, state police say he sexually assaulted the victim, which he made a video of.

In December investigators interviewed Terrizzi, and he reportedly confessed to the crimes.

Terrizzi was one of two Frenchville man arrested on child pornography charges late last year, according to a previous report. That case is still pending in the Clearfield County Court of Common Pleas.
