The former chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee in Pennsylvania who resigned last week after being accused of sexual assault on an employee from his law firm, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with 19 counts, including rape and drug charges. According to sources, 66 year-old Robert Kerns had gotten drunk and assaulted a woman following a GOP dinner in October.
The Raw Story reports, “On Tuesday, Kerns was taken into police custody and charged with rape of an unconscious victim, rape of a substantially impaired person, sexual assault, aggravated assault without consent, aggravated assault of a person unaware penetration was occurring and 8 other forms of assault.
He also faces charges of possession of an instrument of crime with intent, possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence.”
A blood test of the victim revealed she had been drugged with Zolpidem/Ambien which, according to the press release, the victim did not willingly take.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman said at a press conference that the Grand Jury found that Kerns had “delivered a controlled substance and sexually assaulted a woman multiple locations.”
