Templeton man accused of having sex with child multiple times

A Templeton man is being held in the Armstrong County Jail after police say he had sexual contact with a child on multiple occasions over the course of more than a year.

Brent Allen Nulph, 52, of the 300 block of River Hill Road, is charged with felony counts of statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault and related misdemeanor charges.

Nulph was arraigned Thursday before District Judge James Andring.

According to court documents, Nulph, beginning in May 2016 and through last September, met and occasionally had sexual contact with the victim.

Police say that Nulph and the victim met on an internet dating site and that the victim told Nulph their age before they ever met in person.

Nulph is being held in the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond and ahead of a preliminary hearing scheduled for Tuesday before District Judge Kevin Lee McCausland.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
