A Northampton County judge rejected an application for a first-time offender program from the Bangor postmaster accused of harassing women and girls while drunk.
(Greg) Schlegel initially faced charges of harassment and luring a child into a motor vehicle after a day of reported bizarre behavior on Oct. 21, 2009.
But prosecutors withdrew the most serious charges after they said interviews with witnesses and victims revealed Schlegel’s alleged antics were more about drunken behavior than a sex offense.
Schlegel applied for ARD for the remaining charges of disorderly conduct and five counts of summary harassment.
Schlegel, who initially was jailed on the charges, has been free on bail. He has been suspended from his job since the arrest pending the case’s outcome, said Scott Balfour, a spokesman with the U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General.
