A Nesquehoning man, scheduled to go on trial this week in Carbon County court on counts of persistent disorderly conduct and public drunkenness, instead entered a plea bargain and pleaded guilty to lesser charges.
Ronald Gary Kemfort Jr., 25, 46 W. Garibaldi Ave., pleaded to two counts of disorderly conduct, as summary offenses, in exchange for four counts of persistent disorderly conduct and one of public drunkenness being dropped. The criminal complaint was amended to add to two summary counts.
Kemfort was arrested for an incident on May 25, 2009, in the area of 49 W. Garibaldi Ave. Borough police responded to the scene to a report of a man intoxicated outside of the residence yelling obscentities. When police arrived Kemfort was not on scene. He was later found at his home and denied the allegations.
The listed victims of the incident were Anthony Schiano and Carlton LaFong.
President Judge Roger N. Nanovic II accepted the pleas and imposed a fine of $150 on each count plus costs.
