Shearer faces state and federal charges


An Avonmore man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of producing and possessing child pornography.


54-year-old Timothy Eugene Shearer is also facing state charges.  State police took him into custody in September on seventeen charges, including child rape, based on the claims of a 4-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl.  The federal indictment is founded on evidence including a hidden camcorder recording of Shearer raping the girl in his living room.


Shearer will be arraigned in Westmoreland County Court today and will appear in federal court on November 27th.  He’s being held in the Westmoreland County Prison with bond set at $500,000.
