BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY – The 33-year-old Pleasant Gap man charged with more than 1,000 crimes including rape of a child has waived his preliminary hearing.

Eric Crader is charged with nearly 1,300 offenses for allegedly sexually abusing two children repeatedly from 2011 to 2013.

Police say the abuse was discovered after one of the victims told a school guidance counselor. The two elementary school aged victims tell police the abuse happened almost every day after school.
