Lower Swatara man allegedly gave girl sleeping pill, then sexually assaulted her

Posted

A Lower Swatara Township man has been charged with two counts of indecent assault after he allegedly sexually assaulted a juvenile girl after giving her a sleeping pill, according to the affidavit filed with District Judge Michael J. Smith.

The victim told police it happened four years ago after she finished fourth grade.

The girl reportedly told police that she was drinking water and noticed a white pill “halfway dissolved in her drink.” She spit it out, but that night, she told police Michael C. Still, 32, had kissed her and forced her to touch him, according to the affidavit.

Still had threatened to give her sleeping pills in the past, according to the affidavit.

Still told police that he had put allergy medication in her drink. 

He was also charged with endangering the welfare of children.

His bail was set at $10,000, and court records indicate that it was posted. His preliminary hearing is Sept. 16.
