Published February 22. 2019 12:37PM


Coaldale Police have arrested a Lansford man for inappropriate contact with minors.

A child line report was received on Feb. 11 indicating that Peter Sorokaput, 40, of West Kline Avenue, had molested two young girls, a 7-year-old and a 4-year-old.

Police interviewed Sorokaput on Thursday, when he admitted having sexual contact with the 7-year-old on three separate occasions and once with the younger child.

He was arraigned before duty District Magisterial Judge David Rossi on charges of rape of a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child, incest, indecent assault of a minor, child endangerment and indecent exposure.

Rossi set bail at $100,000 straight cash, sending Sorokaput to the Schuylkill County Prison in Pottsville.


From the way I understand that PA is a quasi sanctuary state (thanks Wolf) all the perp would have had to do is claim no English and was from south of border, and law enforcement could not hold perp under this new PSP 'policy'.
