Mt. Lebanon to cite those near deer corrals

Mt. Lebanon police plan to cite people on charges of defiant trespass for getting too close to corral sites being established in the municipality's public parks for an upcoming deer cull.

Five public areas are hosting the deer-thinning process, which is to begin next week. No-trespassing signs have been erected to form a buffer zone around enclosures that are being monitored by the contractor, Wildlife Specialists LLC, based in Tioga County.

On Feb. 23, the contractor notified police that field cameras captured images of people trespassing two days earlier, according to police Deputy Chief Aaron Lauth. A second batch of images provided the same data from late last week. On one occasion, an individual was seen spraying a liquid - thought to be deer repellent - at bait, Deputy Chief Lauth said.

The deputy chief would not say how many people might be cited or whether police have identified them.

Civic leader pleads guilty to child porn charge

A Uniontown entrepreneur named in 2010 to the Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project's "40 under 40" list of civic leaders pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to possession of child pornography in connection with a related state sex case involving a 15-year-old boy.

Jeremy Burnworth, 35, owner of Creative Computer Concepts and Geneva Marketing Group, entered the plea before U.S. District Judge Maurice Cohill. He was indicted in December.

In June, Reserve police stopped Mr. Burnworth driving the wrong way on Mount Troy Road. A 15-year-old boy was in the passenger seat and told officers he had met Mr. Burnworth on a social networking site for gay men and was going to have sex with him.

In court Thursday, Mr. Burnworth's lawyer said the boy initially told his client he was 19, and then 17, and noted that customers using the site are supposed to be 18.

Officers later found child pornography on Mr. Burnworth's cell phone and other devices.
