Former Councilman sentenced...
A former Port Carbon councilman pleaded guilty and was sentenced for sexually abusing a teenage boy in Tamaqua.
According to the Republican Herald, Charles Joy Jr., one of four men charged with sexually assaulting the same victim, entered a guilty plea, as the result of an agreement between Joy and the Schuylkill County District Attorney’s Office.
President Judge William E. Baldwin ordered him to serve three to 23 months in Schuylkill County Prison. Joy was ordered to report to prison on July 20 and, if eligible, may immediately be granted work release.
