District Court

BROOKVILLE — The owner and co-founder of Brookville Behavioral Health has been jailed on allegations that he had sexual relations with a six-year-old girl over a four year period.

Glenn Edward Tetro, 56, 137 Heathville Road, Summerville, is charged by Punxsutawney-based state police with 43 counts of rape, 86 counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, 34 counts of statutory sexual assault, and several related charges. The charges were filed Thursday with District Judge Gregory Bazylak.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, a 29-year-old woman came forward and told police that between September 1994 to March 1998, when she was between the ages of 6-10, Tetro sexually assaulted her multiple times at his residence.

The woman said he forced her to touch him and perform sex acts on him. He would also perform sex acts on the girl.

She said that when she was between the ages of 6-7 the acts occurred almost daily. As she got older they were performed when the opportunity arose and the two were alone.

In the affidavit of probable cause, police wrote, “She indicated that she was trained to perform these acts on him as if it was normal behavior.”

Police say that the victim had two telephone calls with Tetro recently, one in which he apologized to her and the other in which he admitted that he remembered and participated in the inappropriate sexual relations between them.

Tetro is currently being held in Jefferson County Jail in lieu of posting $500,000 cash bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. March 15 at Bazylak’s office in Brookville.
