Lower Mac Man Accused of Fondling 15-Year-Old

Christopher M. Laevey was charged Jan. 24

A Lower Macungie man was charged Jan. 24 with indecent assault and corruption of minors for incidents that occurred in 2009, according to Lehigh County Court documents.

The victim, a then 15-year-old, said that Laevey fondled her breasts, according to a story in The Morning Call.

Christopher M. Laevey, 49, of 4704 Yorkshire Drive, was arrested by state police at Fogelsville and arraigned Jan. 28 before Magisterial District Judge Michael J. Faulkner of Upper Macungie Townsip, according to court documents.

The victim, now a college student, reported the incidents last year, the story said.

Laevey first denied the allegations, then admitted they were true, it said.

Laevey initially was held in Lehigh County Prison, but later the same day was released on $7,500 bail, the court documents said.

A preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for March 26 before Faulkner, according to the court documents.

Anyone slips, especially but not limited to this area, only a little, do we really need to also publish his name & address. Girls & guys @ younger ages regularly get involved, and more than outside the family, fathers, mothers, brothers, etc. start molesting their young at 5-yrs.-old, 'til 18 ! (Too scared to report them, the very people they should be able to trust in the most). As reporter, local newsmedia don't report this, saying, " don't want involve in 'family' matters." HOWEVER, someone OUTSIDE the family does some fondling (no, I don't condone it), whiles dad's & brother & mothers REGULARLY engage in intercourse, etc, and that's kept on the hush? This was few times fondling a 15-yr.-old, not a major crime spree, while moms & dads visit their terriffied 5-yr.-olds nightly. "We don't want to embarass the family," just punish other people. This man is NOT serial. It's long over. You COULD have left his name out !!!
