An East Carnegie man accused of trading drugs to have sex with a Scott Township woman’s 14-year-old daughter is going to trial on charges of sexual assault and corruption of a minor.
Scott Brandon Kunak, 21, was arrested earlier this month by Scott Township police on charges he sold prescription drugs to the girl to give to her mother, before a sexual relationship began.
After several meetings with the girl at Carnegie Park, police said the mother then allowed Kunak to come to their Scott Township home. Kunak then began exchanging the prescription drugs for sex with the teen, according to KDKA-TV.
The television station also reported that Kunak helped the eighth-grader with her homework after at least one occasion.
The mother, who was not identified to protect the teenager, faces child endangerment charges.
Kunak remains in Allegheny County Jail on charges of corruption of minors, statutory sex assault, unlawful contact with a minor and indecent assault. He was held for court on all charges during his preliminary hearing with District Judge Gary Zyra on Feb. 14.
