NJ Bus Driver Watches Porn on Phone; US Attorney Sues Safe Injection Site; Man Dies After 222 Pileup
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A New Jersey school bus driver has been accused of watching pornography on his cell phone while children were around. 64-year-old Franck Lafortune of Burlington Township is charged with obscenity to minors under the age of 18. School officials for Indian Mills Elementary School were notified on Monday, 2/4, that two children saw Lafortune watching porn on his cellphone before they got off the bus at 8:30 a.m. The bus was parked at the time. Officials notified police and he was arrested. Shamong Township School District sent a letter home saying the driver has been suspended by Garden State Transportation and will no longer have involvement with the district. He was released pending a court date.

The federal prosecutor in Philadelphia has filed suit against a non-profit trying to open the first-in-the-country safe drug injection site. U.S. Attorney William McSwain, says "So-called supervised injection sites violate federal law," said McSwain. "Normalizing the use of deadly drugs like heroin and fentanyl is not the answer to solving the opioid epidemic." Safehouse plans on opening a facility in drug ravaged Kensington. Medical staff and outreach personnel would be on hand in case a user overdoses or wishes to enter treatment. Last year over 1,100 people died from drug overdoses in Philadelphia, the most in any city. Mayor Jim Kenney, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, and former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell support the idea. Regarding the lawsuit, "We are not arresting anyone," said McSwain, "We're not trying to seize any property or do any thing heavy-handed at all. We're just asking the federal court to look at it."

Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia also announced charges against a dozen doctors and other employees of Advanced Urgent Care centers in Pennsylvania. The FBI Pill Mill Opioid Task Force raided six advanced Urgent Care clinics from Philadelphia to Scranton, including one in Willow Grove. The doctors have been identified as 49-year-old Dr. Mehdi Nikparvar-Fard, 58-year-old Dr. William Demedio, 65-year-old Dr. Loretta Brown, 70-year-old Dr. Vincent Thompson, 70-year-old Dr. Avrom Brown, Dr. Frederick Reichle, 70-year-old Dr. Marcus Rey Williams, and 77-year-old Dr. Neil Cutler. The physician assistants have been identified as 33-year-old Mitchell White, 56-year-old Debra Cortez, and 42-year-old Samantha Hollis. The office manager, 35-year-old Joanne Rivera, was also charged.

One person has died from injuries sustained in a chain reaction crash last week in Berks County. The Berks County Coroner’s Office announced that 69-year-old Alan L. Ernst has died. The 27-vehicle pileup happened Wednesday, January 30th, on Route 222 in Wyomissing. A quick moving snow squall moved across the region dropping visibility to near zero. Ernst was one of 9 people taken to the hospital. Over a dozen others were treated at the scene.
