    A sexually violent predator': Judge blasts Penn. Republican sentenced to register as a sex offender

    A Pennsylvania judge denounced a former local Republican Party leader on Friday while sentencing him to regularly register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, Mainline Media reports.

    Senior Judge John Braxton labeled ex-Montgomery County GOP head Robert Kerns a “sexually violent predator.” Kerns will have to register his address with the state police four times a year. Kerns will also have to attend monthly counseling sessions as part of his sentence.

    The Pennsylvania Republican’s assigned punishment stems from the accusation that Kerns raped a woman in 2013 “in the back of his Mercedes after providing her with Ambien-laced wine, then sexually assaulting her again at her home a few hours later.”

    According to the local CBS affiliate, prosecutors accused Kerns of “drugging and raping a paralegal who worked at his North Wales law firm after a company party in 2013.” Though fearful of reprisal from a professional superior, and one with political influence in the community, the victim, a 51-year-old woman, informed police about the attack.
