More charges have been added to the list for Elvin Lamey.
The 26-year-old Howard man had a new case filed against him Friday, alleging three counts each of rape of a child, statutory sexual assault by someone 11 or more years older than the victim, incest of a minor under 13, corruption of minors and indecent assault of a person under 13, all felonies, and three counts of misdemeanor indecent assault without consent.
Those charges are in addition to charges in two cases already filed against Lamey. Last year, he was charged with felony corruption of minors and misdemeanor indecent assault. In July, the Centre County District Attorney’s Office filed a second case with five felony counts each of rape of a child, statutory sexual assault by someone 11 or more years older than the victim, incest of a minor under 13 and corruption of minors, and one count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.
On Wednesday, Lamey waived his preliminary hearing on the new charges. He remains free on $300,000 unsecured bond, barred from contact with minors.
Lamey, a concession worker, is prohibited from attending the Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair by an order from District Judge Carmine Prestia on the second case.
The charges stem from incidents involving young relatives, but some family members have defended Lamey. His sister-in-law Jamaica Lamey, of Bellefonte, said she thinks he is innocent and laments the fact that the terms of his bail prevent him from spending time with her young son.
The first two cases were due to be consolidated after a notice to that effect was filed Aug. 8. On Aug. 13, Judge Pamela Ruest granted a continuance.
It is not the first time the original case has been delayed. Lamey entered a guilty plea on that case in August 2013, but withdrew it in January.
Formal arraignment for the new charges is scheduled for Sept. 24.
