Lower Mac Man Accused of Fondling 15-Year-Old

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.
