READING — The Berks County man accused of shooting a Limerick fire official in the head, sexually assaulting a minor and attempting to hire a hit man from jail to eliminate witnesses plead guilty to all charges against him on Wednesday.
Christopher Yingling, 43, of Birdsboro, received no special agreements in exchange for his guilty pleas and will spend the next 27 to 70 years in jail for his crimes, according to the Berks County District Attorney’s office.
“Given the brazenness of his crimes and the harm that he caused his victims, we are pleased with what is effectively a life sentence for the defendant,” said Berks County Assstant District Attorney Jesse Leisawitz in a statement late Wednesday night.
Berks County Common Pleas Court Judge Stephen B. Lieberman was scheduled to preside over Yingling’s trial.
I read about another incident of road rage this morning. What the hell is wrong with people? If you are going to ride someone’s bumper, you run the risk of your car getting hit with anything the car in front of you kicks up. Then you follow someone into a Wawa parking lot and threaten them with a baseball bat? To make matters worse you say you have a gun!
Fortunately, the perp was drunk and had impaired reflexes. The victim was not hit. Getting whacked in the head with an aluminum baseball bat would leave a nasty mark! Thankfully, the gun threat was made up. When the State Police pulled this piece of work over, he got a DUI along with assault and whatever else they can throw at him. GOOD!
Another upstanding citizen from Exton tried to murder a Phoenixville resident. 19 years old and you’re trying to whack people? Are the Soprano’s casting again or what?????
Yesterday, a story appeared about a 29 year-old pervert driving around Pottstown, buck-neeked in his Dad’s car, whilst kneading his noodle in front of little girls. I think you are a. Old enough to know better. b. Pretty creepy using your Dad’s car to commit a sex crime.. c. In need of some serious counseling.
