Felicius Bucyukundi

     According to his docket, former F&M student Felicius Bucyukundi is scheduled to go on trial this Monday before Judge David Ashworth for rape and multiple other charges. He is represented by private attorney Edwin George Pfursich IV of the law firm of Cody & Pfursich.
     There are several very “odd” components of this case:
—  It took the police almost a year to bring the charges.
—  The Lancaster city police press release states:
      On 17 November 2017, Off. Bronstetter took a report of a rape that occurred at Franklin & Marshall College.
     Officer Damon Bronstetter has been fired and is himself charged with two counts of simple assault and one charge of cruelty to animals. He is scheduled to have a status conference in his case on May 23rd before Judge Ashworth. Will he testify in Bucyukundi’s trial?

    What would lead to a bias or appearance of such in these two cases for the judge? He doesn’t personally know anyone involved and he is not prosecuting the cases. They aren’t his witnesses or his charges. He had nothing to do with either investigation. The only connection between the two matters is the cop, who is a witness in one case and defendant in another, unrelated matter. It’s a problem for the cop and DA’s office, not the judge.

    Dear other anonymous: It is called “bias”. Or appearance oc….

    Lawyer Joshua Prince billed MAW more than $800,000.00 to defend against PPL? Are you kidding me? That is CRAZY. A couple of hearings and a little research, maybe, since he is not versed in public utility law. No wonder these lawyers in Lancaster are all in bed with each other. Where did Prince think that money was coming from? If they had gone to a full-blown trial and Prince WON his services still wouldnt be worth that much. Prince’s bills are obscene. And now Neal Albert can jump into the scene and get his cut. This is disgusting. There’s no money in prosecuting MAW – or cutting our losses. It’s all about the comeback, now, baby!

    Wait a minute! How can Ashworth be the judge overseeing the criminal cases of both the cop AND the other guy? Isn’t that a HUGE conflict of interest?

      No. What would be the conflict for the judge? There is a small credibility issue to be explored when the cop testifies in the rape case, but that is it.

    No. Hardly from money.

    Felicius did not have the normal path of most students. He and his family fled Rwanda to avoid war and violence. This has motivated Felicius to use his voice against violence and hatred. He was on the honor roll and part of the Newcomer Academy at Central High School before transferring to Collegiate. He is a member of Pep Club, Student Government and Beta Club as well as a member of the soccer and track teams. Felicius has earned All-State and All-Region honors in soccer as well as the title of Team Captain and the Titan Award. Felicius volunteers his time at his church with the Trinity World Outreach Center as well as The Refuge youth program. He plans to do a post graduate year at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. He has deferred his college acceptance one year with hopes to play soccer at a Division-I college.

      So all that doesn’t make him a rapist?

      • huh? says:

        No, that has nothing to do with his guilt or innocence. It has to do with him coming from $$$ as you “bet.” Read your post. He doesn’t.

        What he comes from is a country where one of the worst genocides occured in modern times.

        The bloody history of Hutu and Tutsi conflict stained the 20th century, from the slaughter of 80,000 to 200,000 Hutus by the Tutsi army in Burundi in 1972, to the 1994 Rwanda genocide. In just 100 days during which Hutu militias targeted Tutsis, between 800,000 and 1 million people were killed.

      Why am I not surprised that you doubled down? It’s a tactic used to shut down conversations and discussion. Ill leave you with your foregone conclusions.
