A Florida man remains in the McKean County Jail near Smethport after agreeing Monday to waive his preliminary hearing in a nearly year-old sexual assault case.
Tyler Donald Schimp, 34, of Jacksonville, Fla. faces 10 charges linked with the alleged “indecent assault” of an 11-year-old girl at a residence in Lafayette Township in December 2018.
