Child rape suspect waives preliminary hearing

Eric Crader is charged with more than 1,000 counts for his alleged abuse of two children.
BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY – A 33-year-old Pleasant Gap man charged with sexually abusing two children waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Eric Crader is charged with more than 1,000 crimes including Rape of a Child. Court documents state the victims were repeatedly raped by Crader from 2011 to 2013.

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

Crader’s case will go to trial later this year.
