A Franklin postal carrier accused of inappropriately touching a woman on multiple occasions and breaking into her home during a mail delivery waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday in Venango County Central Court.
Terry Duck, 47, of Seneca, was charged with felony counts of burglary and criminal trespass, in addition to two misdemeanor counts of indecent assault-forcible compulsion and one misdemeanor count of indecent assault without consent.
A criminal complaint filed through district judge Matthew Kirtland’s office said on Dec. 5, U.S. postal inspector Erik Bohin alerted Franklin police to having received a sexual assault complaint in regards to Duck, one of their mail carriers at the Franklin post office.
Duck underwent and failed a polygraph test by the U.S. Postal Inspector Service in Pittsburgh on Dec. 6, the complaint said. He later admitted touching the woman inappropriately on her buttocks area, but he continued to deny touching her anywhere else, the complaint said.
USPS records indicate that Duck is a city letter carrier hired in 2000.
