PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man already jailed on charges he stalked Amish children near their western Pennsylvania school will stay there until his trial on federal child pornography charges.
Thirty-nine-year-old Lucas Klobetanz was sentenced to at least three months in jail last month after pleading guilty to trying to lure children into an outhouse at the Ligo Amish School in Wilmington Township. Klobetanz originally claimed he merely needed help picking up toilet paper he had dropped.
He was indicted by a federal grand jury, also last month, after authorities say they found child pornography in his Ellwood City home.
Klobetanz waived a federal detention hearing Wednesday to determine whether he'd remain jailed on the pornography charges should he complete his stalking case first.
Klobetanz' defense attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment.
