Writing about fired Lancaster City Officer Damon Bronstetter this morning reminded me of fired East Earl Township officer Christopher Young. He is charged with sexual assault, stalking and simple assault.
It has horrific details and the case has a twist – Young tried to sue the victim’s mother for defamation of character because she reported his behavior to his chief (see above and the original with the suit and a link to the LNP article is here).
According to his docket, he was scheduled to have a status conference on September 26th – but what really caught my eye is below: On August 5th his attorney, Eric Michael Gibson of Wyomissing, notified the court he wIll be using an alibi defense (click here for his full docket). What in the world? An alibi defense? I will continue to follow this case!
A COP WHO BEATS
WOMEN & ANIMALS?
WHERE HAS COMPASSION GONE?
Perhaps Leilany Tran, the new police social worker, could begin with Ana Brito, charged with assaulting her 22-year-old autistic son. The police were very quick to respond and arrest Brito following an online video showing her punching her son (see the post immediately below on this site for the video and a link to the police press release).
The huge majority of the comments were, “She should be punched in the face,” which of course, would land that puncher in court. There were a few commenters who said this woman may be overwhelmed and need help.
Is Brito a serial abuser or an overwhelmed woman who could use some help and compassion? Shouldn’t we find out?
