Anthony Fletcher, 37, is facing multiple charges including child porn, rape, and sexual assault.
State Police were investigating Fletcher for child porn when they found images of an unconscious girl and a man performing sexual acts on her. Fletcher allegedly admitted to it being him and a girl he knows.
“The charges against my client that were previously leveled were very serious. These are even more serious,” Fletcher’s attorney David Shrager said.
Fletcher was already facing child porn and invasion of privacy charges in Washington County.
Police said he hid a camera in the bathroom of the Armory Youth Center in Canonsburg and filmed girls taking off their clothes. Shrager is fighting those claims.READ MORE: Living Life To The Fullest: Local Businessman Thriving Thanks To Breakthrough Treatment For SMA
“My client maintains his innocence. I’ll be addressing those charges and it’s going to be quite some time before we have a complete and final resolution,” Shrager told KDKA.
In the latest criminal complaint, state police say they found 43 video on Fletcher’s devices showing him performing sex acts on a girl. Troopers said the victim was unconscious as she was not responding to touch and could be heard snoring.
Shrager said these charges are new and his office is just starting their investigation.
“So new that we haven’t even gotten to that conversation yet. Just a little bit and we’re going to have to do something in depth in order for me to act intelligently on those facts,” Shrager said.
Court papers said the victim, who is now 20 years old, told police she did not know about the assaults.
She identified herself and Fletcher in videos. Based on details in the videos, she gave a timeline of 2013-2021 for the alleged assaults.
“My client has never been in trouble before he faithfully served in the military and he’s anxious to have his day in court,” Shrager said.MORE NEWS: McKeesport Police Searching For Missing 13-Year-Old Thomas Grier
