(Scroll down for video) A lawyer was arrested on charges indecent assault after allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl in his office, prosecutors in Pennsylvania said.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office charged 56-year-old Brian Meehan of Berwyn, with Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse, Statutory Sexual Assault, Unlawful Contact with a Minor, Corrupting the Morals of a Minor, Indecent Assault, Promoting Prostitution of a Minor, and Patronizing Prostitutes for sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl.
The arrest of Meehan, who is married and has a daughter, comes after a lengthy grand jury and Police Special Victims Unit (SVU) investigation.
SVU Detectives began investigating a Germantown area man and woman accused of forcing girls into prostitution, one of whom was a 14-year-old girl.
That girl told police that she had been recruited by the couple to have sex with men for money, and that they would beat her and threaten to kill her if she tried to leave them.
The couple later admitted to police that this young girl was one of five girls that were being prostituted out of their W. Harvey Street house.
The couple was arrested and charged with Human Trafficking, Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse, Statutory Sexual Assault, Unlawful Contact with a Minor, Corrupting the Morals of a Minor, Indecent Assault, and Promoting Prostitution of a Minor.
The 14-year-old victim in this case was taken on multiple “out-calls” to engage in prostitution. An “out-call” is when a girl is taken to a person’s home or place of business to engage in sexual activity with a “john.”
The 14-year-old victim in this case was taken to “out-calls” at the defendant’s place of employment – a Center City law firm at One Penn Center – several times where he engaged in sex with her for money.
The 14-year-old victim was able to describe Meehan’s office and the interactions she had with him in the office. She also testified that Meehan told her that he knew that she was only 14 years old, that he liked younger girls, and that the youngest girl he had sex with was a 12 year old.
SVU detectives executed a search of Meehan’s 1617 JFK Boulevard office and recovered forensic materials consistent with sexual acts occurring in there.
