Pretrial Hearing Held Today for Accused Child Abuser


A 60 year old Nevada man will go to jury trial next week for continuous sexual abuse of two young sisters.

Clarence Homer Swegheimer, who turned 60 on Wednesday, is jailed  with more than a million dollars bonds on 14 counts of aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child by sexual contact.

One of the sisters, now 18, took the stand in a pretrial hearing today in 89th district court and broke down in tears talking about  alleged abuse many years ago.

She first told a child service interviewer about it  in 2012. She said the defendant was the father of a friend of her mother and that she was abused when he had her perform what he called a fashion show.

She earlier told investigators she and her sister were in bathing suits that time and she also told them he did things to her in his truck and would have her do things to him and that she was abused other times on long walks.

She said the abuse continued from when she was 10 until she was 12.

The  other girl gave Patsy's House interviewers specific and graphic details of incidents she says began when she was in the 1st grade.

The judge ruled the Patsy's House worker who first talked to the victim will be the outcry witness in the trial. Jury selection for the trial is set to begin at 1:30 pm Monday, after another pretrial hearing at 10:30 a.M.

A jury panel of 70 has been summoned.
