Robert J. Kerns, the former Montgomery County Republican Chairman, pleaded no contest on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of indecent assault in Montgomery County Court.

It was a negotiated plea deal with the Attorney General’s office, and Kerns will serve two years probation and be a registered sex offender for 15 years.

Kerns was accused of having non-consensual sex with an employee of his Lansdale law firm while she was passed out after a night of drinking in October 2013.

More serious charges against him – rape and sexual assault – were dismissed in June by a lower court.

Wilkes-Barre police got a search warrant Tuesday for the cellphone records of the “paramour” of a man they say was at the scene of the fatal shooting of Michael Onley, according to court records.

Onley, a popular deejay who worked as “DJ Mo,” was shot in the forehead in a drive-by shooting at Outsiders Bar at 650 S. Main St. on Oct. 13.

According to an affidavit filed in support of the warrant, witnesses reported seeing a silver or gray car, possibly a Mercedes-Benz, driving south on South Pennsylvania Avenue at the time of the shooting. Police “obtained information” that David “D-Rock” Nealy, 32, may have been at the bar the night of the shooting, the affidavit says.

Cell phone records revealed a phone used by Nealy, who is under supervision of the state Board of Probation and Parole, used a cellphone tower near the bar, police said.

Theta Xi Suspended At California University Of PA

Last weekend’s mega party at the Theta Xi house caused an uproar with college and borough law enforcement.  The California University of Pennsylvania Chapter of Theta Xi is being suspended by their national governing body as a result.  Last weekend’s “festivities” resulted in about 90 citations issued for alcohol related offenses across the borough.

California University officials are most likely placing those cited on probation and ordering offenders into alcohol education programs.  This crackdown was a joint venture between Cal U and California Borough.
