Pennsylvania state prosecutors have charged a Pennsylvania state representative and accused her of stealing over $500,000 from a non-profit she founded to help the mentally ill and poor fighting addiction. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro's office announced the charges on Wednesday, 12/4, against state Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell. Those charges include perjury, tampering with public records, and theft. Johnson-Harrell allegedly took the funds from the non-profit Motivations Education & Consultation Associates or MECA. She used the money for payments on her Porsche, vacations, expensive clothes, real estate, and other expenses. "She has agreed to take responsibility for her crimes and will plead guilty to her charges," Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. The 53-year-old Democrat won a special election last March to take the seat in the 190th District which serves West Philadelphia. She became the first female Muslim member of the state House. Johnson-Harrell filled the seat vacated by Democrat Vanessa Lowery Brown who resigned after been sentenced for bribery and other charges last December.

Two middle school children were injured when a Pennsylvania State Police chase ended in a multi-car crash in Germantown on Tuesday evening, 12/3.

The chase ended when the driver hit a parked car on the 5200 block of Morris Street. The parked car then struck two young kids that were standing nearby. A 12-year-old boy suffered injuries to his lower leg and a 13-year-old girl possibly suffered a broken ankle. The driver, Renaldo McPercy Robichaw, was arrested. The passenger, James Adams, was also arrested on a warrant out of Philadelphia.
