The suspended principal of Pittsburgh Brookline K-8 accused of exposing himself at a McCandless gym was held for court Wednesday on several charges.

But the district judge presiding over the preliminary hearing for Alfonzo DeIuliis dismissed three charges, including what his attorney called the “most serious” one.

Mr. DeIuliis, 37, of Hampton was ordered to stand trial on charges of indecent exposure, open lewdness, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor and harassment involving one alleged victim, 17, at a hearing before District Judge William K. Wagner.

Charges of indecent exposure and open lewdness for a second alleged victim were held for court.

Macungie man told a judge Monday that he and his 3-year-old son saw Borough Councilman Linn Walker’s penis as Walker urinated outside his house in July.

Walker’s defense attorney argued that the alleged act doesn’t amount to open lewdness, the crime Walker is accused of committing that day.  But District Judge Donna Butler said she heard enough evidence during a Monday afternoon preliminary hearing to send Walker’s case to Lehigh County Court.

“I don’t think we would have a whole lot of [media] here today if peeing in public was a normal thing to do,” Butler said in issuing her ruling, adding, “I don’t pee in public.”  She said a jury can decide whether Walker committed a lewd act as alleged.

Walker did not speak to reporters before or after the hearing at District Court in Emmaus.  Although he said after he was charged on Aug. 3 that he planned to step down from council, he has not submitted his resignation to the borough.
