Bucks County man pleads to resisting arrest charge
A Bucks County man entered a guilty plea on Tuesday afternoon to a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and a summary offense of disorderly conduct.
Jesse Dwaine Weber, 31, of Bristol, was sentenced to time-served (23 days) to 23 months by Judge Steven R. Serfass, who accepted the pleas.
Weber was arrested by Jim Thorpe police for an incident on March 31. Police responded to a residence in the 300 block of Center Avenue for a report of an unwanted man. On scene they found Weber outside the home. When confronted by police, he started yelling and became unruly, according to officers. When they attempted to take him into custody he resisted. The residence was the then home of his mother, police noted.
In exchange for his plea, the district attorney’s dropped a felony 3 count of criminal trespass and misdemeanor counts of defiant trespass and persistent disorderly conduct.
Serfass also ordered Weber to get both drug and alcohol and mental health evaluations and follow any recommendations for treatment, render 100 hours of community service, pay court costs of over $1,000 and pay a $50 per month supervision fee while on probation.
On the summary conduct count he was fined $300 and costs.
