Guard to stand trial in case of teen runaway

April 7, 2006


— A school security guard accused of sex crimes with a teen runaway was ordered Thursday to stand trial after the woman described how he allegedly kept her in a small room in his house for a decade.

Thomas Hose and a neighbor and friend, Judith Sokol, are charged in the case of Tanya Nicole Kach. Sokol, who allegedly helped hide the girl, was also ordered Thursday to stand trial.

Kach, 24, surfaced March 21 and told police that she ran away from home in 1996 and had been living in Hose's house in McKeesport, not far from where she grew up, ever since.

Testifying Thursday, Kach recounted how she met Hose when she was an eighth-grader and had sex with him for the first time in 1996 at Sokol's house.
