James “Jay” Schiliro, now ex-mayor of Pennsylvania small town Marcus Hook, was a member of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG). He’s also a Republican. And he signed some petition released by MAIG urging Obama and the Senate to take more action on gun control to keep those guns out of the “wrong hands.”
He befriended some kid when this kid was a teen, helping him through some personal struggles. Apparently, this teen had no contact with his biological father. And Schiliro was a single father of a 13-year-old daughter. The teen looked up to Mayor Schiliro as a sort of father figure.
When this teen turned 20, Schiliro said he grew attracted to him. One drunken night, Schiliro ordered one of his late-shift police officers to bring this young man to his residence. When the young man arrived, Schiliro wouldn’t let him leave for 3 ½ hours. Philly.com reported back when this incident happened:
He gave the man wine, then allegedly offered 20 to 30 times to perform oral sex on him, according to the report.
When the man repeatedly refused, Schiliro, who as mayor controls the police department, started to pull out handguns, informed the man that he was “going to be a hostage,” fired a 9 mm bullet into the wall and said that he’d ordered police to stay away from the house, the report states.
Now, this anti-gun (well, guns for him, but no one else) mayor has been sentenced to 10 to 20 months in jail for “recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, official oppression, and furnishing liquor to a minor.” He’s also got “five years of probation, 50 hours of community service, and was ordered to pay $1,300 in fines and court costs. He is eligible for work release and time off for good behavior.”
If this had been a non-politician, he would have been charged with at least kidnapping and attempted rape and would’ve gotten a lot stiffer sentence than 10 to 20 months. But since it’s an anti-gun politician, we’re all just supposed to feel sorry for him that he has personal problems that he has to deal with. Poor guy.
