Upper Merion Police have charged a man with assaulting a teenaged runaway he met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
Paul Corrigan is accused of repeatedly having sex with the 16-year-old.
He was arrested and the girl was found at the Crown Plaza on Mall Boulevard. Police observed lubricant and a vibrator in Corrigan's hotel room.
Authorities say the girl snuck out of her parents' home a number of times to meet with Corrigan.
He bought her cigarettes, alcohol, and various other items to bribe her into future excursions, investigators say.
Police say Corrigan and the girl texted each other for about two months after they met at the AA meeting. Corrigan is married.
After a one-two punch of snowstorms, we're left with bitter cold. Even with plenty of sunshine today, look for highs only around 30-degrees. West winds 5-10 mph with feels like temperatures in the teens. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks.
The cold stays with us for a few more days.
Then, we start tracking another potentially messy wnitry storm, set to arrive on Saturday.
