Hearing waived in indecent assault case

LEWISTOWN – A 29-year-old Lewistown man recently waived a preliminary hearing on indecent assault charges.

Shawn E. Gisewhite waived his hearing at Magisterial District Judge Aaron Gingrich’s office.

Gisewhite’s charges stem from allegations he had innapropriate physical contact with a 14-year-old boy on several occassions, according to court documents.

In addition, Gisewhite encouraged the victim to perform lewd acts in the pressence of other children, police said.

Gisewhite remains free on $25,000 unsecured bail. A formal arraignment in the Mifflin County Court of Common Pleas is expected to take place in June.
