Pennsylvania GOP official accused of drugging and raping woman multiple times pleads ‘no contest’

Published

on

The former chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee in Pennsylvania has pleaded no contest after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman following a GOP event.

Robert Kerns, 67, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of indecent assault.

“This is absolutely a conviction,” Deputy Attorney General Daniel Dye said on Monday, according to Montgomery News. “There is no difference under the law between a guilty plea and a no-contest plea. In other words, a guilty-plea is ‘I did it’ and a no contest plea is ‘you got me.'”

Kerns allegedly drugged the victim, an employee of his law firm, last year by putting insomnia medication in her drink during a Republican Party dinner, then raped her multiple times when she passed out.

He will serve two years of probation, and is required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

“I believe justice has been served by the plea and sentence of the defendant today and that other women will be protected as a result of it,” the victim said in statement.

Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, posted on Twitter an Associated Press story on the "perilous conditions" at a Texas Border Patrol station holding 300 children.

"The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this," Moore wrote.
