Pittsburgh Public Schools placed the principal of its Brookline K-8 campus on paid administrative leave, the district said today, after he was accused of asking a 17-year-old boy to allow him to perform oral sex.
Alfonzo DeIuliis, 37, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault, two counts of indecent exposure, open lewdness and harassment, according to court records.
He likely will be released tomorrow after he completes a behavioral clinic “to make sure he’s not a danger to himself or others,” standard procedure when charges involve accusations of a sex-related assault, his attorney, Phil DiLucente, said.

HARRISBURG – City officials will decide next week whether to allow tax breaks to entice badly needed development on 10 properties – most of which do not generate any revenue currently.
Representatives from the Capital Region Economic Development Corporation, Hamilton Health Center, and the local public school district lobbied City Council’s Community Development Committee Wednesday night for a Keystone Opportunity Zone.
Target sites include four closed schools and the half-finished Capitol View Commerce Center abandoned by developer David Dodd, who’s now awaiting sentencing for defrauding the $28 million project of federal funds.

WILKES-BARRE, PA — Ten people were arrested and heroin was seized after a drug raid on South Welles Street on Tuesday.
The Wilkes-Barre Police Department TAC-Unit, with the assistance of the Pennsylvania State Police and Attorney General’s Office, executed a search warrant at 135 S. Welles St., charging 10 people with drug trafficking and related offenses.
The search warrant also resulted in the seizure of “a significant amount” of heroin from the South Welles Street home, the city said in a press release.
Over a three day period, law enforcement agencies charged a total of 16 individuals with drug activity through buy-bust operations, including the raid on South Welles Street. This investigation is part of an ongoing effort between local and state law enforcement agencies to target drug activity and violent crime in several Wilkes-Barre neighborhoods.

Until Monday, the city had early 19th-century ordinances on its books regulating the handling of milk in glass bottles, banning horses and cows from being stabled in any building where ice cream is made, and cracking down on wholesale slaughter houses.
It also had ordinances governing programs the city phased out years ago, such as the citizen inspection program, and duplicates of ordinances that began in one code section but were repeated and changed in another.
For instance, City Clerk Linda A. Kelleher said the rules for setting out trash and removing snow and ice were listed in three different places in three different ways.
