February 4, 2014- An elected Crawford County Constable has been bound over to Erie County court on three felony and 19 misdemeanor charges involving the sexual assault of a woman.

Millcreek Police say Stephen Chamberlain arranged to meet the woman on several occasions for the purpose of having sex with her, then used his office as a law enforcement officer to extort the sexual services.

Police say the victim in this case had advertised “escort services” on Craigslist.

Following the encounter with Chamberlain, the woman called Millcreek Police, who investigated and brought charges.

Chamberlain is free on bond.
