     This is what is known at this point: According to multiple sources, Assistant District Attorney Mark Fetterman, who is running for District Attorney, was suspended on Wednesday after an altercation with District Attorney Craig Stedman. The length of his suspension and whether it is paid or unpaid is not known.
     Christina Housner, Solicitor for the County of Lancaster, said by phone this afternoon that she cannot comment on personnel matters. She did state that if the County Commissioners issue a statement she will let me know.
     There will be more tomorrow on this developing and critically important story.
     In other news, there is a Lancaster City Council Committee meeting tonight at 6:00 pm and it will be live-streamed on the city’s YouTube channel (click here) and the agenda for tonight’s meeting is here.    


**   I have located a photograph of Assistant District Attorney Mark Fetterman.

*    Assistant District Attorney and candidate to be DA, Karen Mansfield’s ex-husband’s Court Summary is below (click here for it on the PA Courts website). Again, I cannot find records of when they married and divorced.


2-4-19 UPDATE

UPDATE 2-4-19 – What are the Republicans going to do about this mess? A candidate for District Attorney has been suspended by the current District Attorney! Can this really be happening? Who vetted these candidates? Lancaster County deserves better than this!

    Becky, Can’t privately email but wanted to let u know the lnp story on dj Jimenez is b.s. She may have health issues but she is forced out but keeps her pension. The list of wrongdoing is endless, including helping her kids out of legal problems, her own financial improprieties, etc. Also it was her employee who misused their position to purposely have sheriffs deputies arrest and jail a love rival. Think they got off with a slap. Alan Silverman is Jimenez’ live in boyfriend who would write letters to the editor at campaign time and act as if he is just your average joe and paper never disclosed he was her boyfriend. OR campaign advisor as they now call him. She was one of the most corrupt and dishonest d.j.’s in the County – constantly engaging in ex parte communications with cops, etc. That top position is now a tie between Joshua Keller and Brian Chudzik.

    How convenient… While the earlier meetings were streamed live by a regular citizen.

    Is the city using MAW?

    NJ Mom. This is how it works in Lancaster. I was talking to some family members who had no idea that Mayor Siracha is married to a Benchmark executive. They knew of Benchmark and were talking about Benchmark’s contract for the square. Boy were they surprised. Two of them are in business themselves and had a hard time believing that he’s married to the mayor.

    As long as the newspaper and TV for that matter keep this hush hush, no one will connect the dots.

    I dated (lived with) a chief assistant prosecutor in NJ for eight years and I have never heard of a prosecutor being suspended for anything!! And a press leak on it, too? Sounds very fishy to me.

    Not a fan of Stedman – or his office – but Fetterman is an excellent lawyer who just won a murder case with only 45 minutes of jury deliberations. Probably suspended for same reason Stedman went after a completely innocent Jayne Duncan – to give him bad press so his favored candidate can win. Doubtful Fetterman did anything to warrant a suspension when he lets others lie FOR him. Stedman ought to suspend a-d-a’s who suborn perjured testimony and manufacture evidence – Like Karen Mansfield, Jonathon Chieppor, Caitlin Blazier, Trevor Anderson, etc.

    Whatcha wanna bet that now the LNP will run with the story? Especially if they and Stedman are backing another candidate.
