Is it opposed to rain tomorrow; prolly!
"careaboutpa" said it best: "In York county, it is the women who are uneducated, overweight and have facial hair"! In York County, we like 'em that way. But once you get past the smell, you got it licked!

sure maybe we can get grants to cover that. because remember the county says there are no additional funds to provide for certain positions. guess we can let the people who govern the jobs know this is needed and may be warranted so they can stop using the money for things that have no common sense.
how many officers use there position to find companions? the numbers will not look good. run that article and see the many husbands loosing their pretty sidekicks at home, the pension and the list goes on. maybe he was not using his position, he was just talking to the girl. lets see if the girl was telling the truth, she could be a liar for some person she mad at and getting back at.
its always easy for someone to accuse you of something, even if witnesses present it is the grind to get the facts. time, money and alot of patience.
I would question her story more if the article hadn't said he admitted he had kissed her on the cheek and rubbed her back. Unless I am dreaming I read that? It's just so goofy! Why would he risk his job for so little? He sounds like the kind of person who would sell their car for gas money!

I'm sure this isn't the only female this has happened to. Guess we'll wait and see.......
Thank you for verifying what I thought I had read! All these people making comments about doubting what she said had me doubting my own intelligence in remembering what I had read. I was going to go back and read it again till I saw your comment. What's wrong with these people? Geesh!

How is it going to cost the tax payers. If he is found guilty or pleads guilty he picks up the cost. If he is sued there is not a political subdivision that he is covered by. His insurance compaly, shich he pays for will have to pay the bill. Now putting another constabe with him would cost the criminal more money.
He doesn't have to pay the lawyers who would work for those he is suing if he sued. I was also assuming he probably doesn't make a whole lot of money, and now that he has pulled this stunt won't be doing his constable job till it gets figured out, so for that reason I was thinking a public defender. Who pays for them? I don't know the ins and outs as you seem to when it comes to someone working in the capacity he is. I guess another option would be to have video cameras installed in the cars they transport people in. That way the person transporting would be protected from false accusations, and the person being transported would be protected from unwanted advances or whatever?

Make it mandatory for them to have dash cams. Simple solution. This day and age all law enforcement should have them. Are you listening Northern Regional?

Wow some people in this forum must be socialists because last time I checked this was america where "people" live who are innocent until proven guilty. I guess we should correct that to guilty until you pay an overpriced lawyer to get you innocent but your still guilty cause other people have already judged you wow say bye bye to freedom

The person making these acquisitions is already in trouble with the law. So why not try to bring someone else down too.Stand beside my friend when he said he did not kiss this women. Trying to help her letting her have a phone call for the warrant. Giving her a bite to eat. Sounds like a nice gesture to me.
Sounds to me like he was trying to get into her pants or at least some cheap feels......

Innocent till proven guilty unless you make a statement admitting you did what you are accused of doing. This guy did just that. So what's your argument now? We should just all play as dumb about his guilt as he was doing what he did? Obviously this man is not the sharpest tack in the pack. He not only does stupid stuff and risks getting in trouble and thereby losing his job, he makes a statement admitting it. I guess it is just another case of stupid should hurt?

I agree with some postings, like women should be transported by women and the opposite, but remember criminals are criminals...liers, cheaters, stealers, and it takes 2 to tango. I don't care who you are, if your not satisfied with who you are with and maybe unhappy and need love or attention somewhere else that person will go and find it. Not saying he was right or if this really happened and it was his word against hers. Need evidence to prove someone guilty and why all the sudden now, did he reject her and she is looking to get back??

OMG PEOPLE! The article states in it the man was accused of inappropriate conduct ....Fenstermacher said Wert "massaged and rubbed her back and kissed her twice on the face." Ok? He was to transport her from point A to point B without any side trips involved. He failed to do so. Reading on just a bit farther in the article it states the following, which is an admission of wrong doing by the accused! What is so hard to figure out with the admission he did what the woman accused him of doing? Why all the statements here defending him as if he is being falsely accused?
Fenstermacher also said he interviewed Wert who acknowledged the river incident and the stop off on the way back to Dauphin County.

"He further acknowledged that he did kiss her twice on the face and rubbed her back," Fenstermacher wrote.

READ the article and then make comments that make sense pertaining to what was reported please!

Your first sentence is confusing. If he sues someone yes he has to pay the attorney that represents him. If he is sued he doesn't have to get an attorney, but a first year law student would eat him up in civil court. Constables are independent contractors. Some constables in this county make +$110,000.00 per year. Now that being said they pay for everything, insurance—gas—their own cars—their own uniforms (if they wear one) and so on–and so on.. They get paid for the amount of work they do. Wert could use a public defender for his criminal charges if he qualifies. Cameras in the car would be a great idea and who pays for that??????–the constable.

And Joel you wrote, "Mike is a very good friend of mine. He is a great family man to his wife & kids. Please lets not judge him if we are not fully informed." How much more information do you need. He acknowledged the accusations. Ya a great family man—tries to get in another womens pants by using his authority. Just the kind of husband I would want to be married to. And ya he probable still plays with his kids so that makes it ok. Sorry you're wrong.

I am sorry for that lead in sentence. I don't know what I was doing when I proof read it. I might have been in a confused state of mind after reading some of the posts here? ;) I had no idea what kind of money he was making. Even people who make a nice amount don't always have any to fall back on in hard times. I was trying to express it might cost the tax payers money if he needs a public defender. I got jumbled up somehow when I started out. Whatever, his capacity is to serve in the legal system where he is trusted to perform his duties with integrity. I think he fell down on the job more than a little, especially if he is a married man. I feel sorry for his family. What a mess he got himself into with this! Geesh! I'd hate to be him right now.
