*Some may find the details of this story graphic and disturbing.
A Waterford man is behind bars on 20 charges for rape and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, after investigators said he raped a juvenile female and impregnated another on several occasions.
Jason Daniel Goodwill, 51, of Dunn Valley Rd., was arraigned Tuesday on charges including sexual assault; rape forcible compulsion; involuntary deviate sexual intercourse forcible compulsion; two counts each of rape, corruption of minors and indecent assault without consent; four counts of indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age; and three counts each of endangering the welfare of children and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.
He was denied bond and is behind bars in the Erie County Prison due to the seriousness of the charges and the possibility that additional charges may be filed.
Pennsylvania State Police said the investigation spans from 2006 to 2020, and the victims - a 12 year old and 20 year old - were in Goodwill's custody when the crimes occurred.
The investigation started May 7 when investigators were called to UPMC Hamot Children's Care Clinic for suspected child abuse at a residence in McKean Township involving the victims, according to State Police.
The 12 year old was taken to UPMC Hamot for testing and observation after she told the 20 year old that she was being sexually abused by Goodwill, the criminal complaint said.
The 12 year old told investigators she was sexually abused more than one time within the home, starting when she was approximately ten years old. The daughter said she told Goodwill "no" on several occasions, and he threatened that she would be taken to the hospital, put on a table and stuff would be pulled out of her if she told her mother about what he did, according to the criminal complaint.
She also told investigators Goodwill showed her child pornography on her phone when she was approximately 11 years old. He forced her to have sex with him and inappropriately touched her during those sex acts, the investigator wrote in the criminal complaint.
The 20 year old told investigators she had been sexually abused by Goodwill starting when she was approximately 7 years old. She said Goodwill inappropriately touched her and forced her to have sex with him regularly, almost daily, and said "she would lose her family and the house in which she lives" if she did not, the criminal complaint said.
She said she believes Goodwill impregnated her on several occasions, according to State Police. He reportedly injected her with a chemical to unnaturally induce labor, so he could abort the pregnancies, the investigator said.
The 20 year old said she gave birth to a child in 2014, and Goodwill took possession of the baby, which eventually passed away and was buried on the property of the McKean residence, according to the criminal complaint.
State Police investigators tell Erie News Now they served a search warrant at the home on May 12th and recovered evidence on the property in connection to the death of a child.
State Police investigators said they are looking for additional physical evidence related to the 20 year old's report and will file more criminal charges, if necessary.
