Savanna May Ramsey, 28, of 121 Mulberry St., is charged with assaulting a young boy for about one year during 2003 and 2004, according to the criminal complaint filed by Southwest Regional Police. The assaults allegedly occurred while Ramsey lived on Pleasant View Road, Union Township, and the boy was about 7 to 8 years old, police said. Ramsey was a juvenile at the time but has been charged as an adult.
Because the alleged incidents occurred more than a decade ago, and Ramsey has always appeared for interviews and Tuesday’s hearing, and has no prior criminal record, she was released on her own recognizance. Ramsey is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 11 a.m. July 30 in Central Court.
Police said the accusations were made during a recent interview with the boy regarding an unrelated incident.
As a condition of her release without bond, Ramsey is not to have any contact with the alleged victim.
