Upper Merion Police have charged a man with assaulting a teenaged runaway he met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
Paul Corrigan is accused of repeatedly having sex with the 16-year-old.
He was arrested and the girl was found at the Crown Plaza on Mall Boulevard. Police observed lubricant and a vibrator in Corrigan's hotel room.
Authorities say the girl snuck out of her parents' home a number of times to meet with Corrigan.
He bought her cigarettes, alcohol, and various other items to bribe her into future excursions, investigators say.
Police say Corrigan and the girl texted each other for about two months after they met at the AA meeting. Corrigan is married.
