  5. Clarion Man Accused of Aggravated Indecent Assault of 14-Year-Old Girl March 28, 2020 12:30 am· Author: exploreJefferson CLARION TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A Clarion man is behind bars on charges related to allegations of indecent assault of a 14-year-old girl. Court documents indicate the Clarion-based State Police filed the following criminal charges against 23-year-old Steven Eugene Dunkle, of Clarion: – Aggravated Indecent Assault – Comp. Less Than 16, Felony 2 – Unlawful Contact With Minor – Sexual Offenses, Felony 2 – Corruption Of Minors – Defendant Age 18 or Above, Felony 3 – Indecent Assault Person Less 16 Years Age, Misdemeanor 2 According to a criminal complaint, Clarion-based State Police began an investigation after receiving two referrals from Clarion County Children and Youth Services (CYS) regarding allegations of child abuse they received from a mandated reporter. Trooper Bauer reviewed the referral, which reported Steven Dunkle was having sexual relations with a 14-year-old female. Dunkle was interviewed on March 12. According to the complaint, when asked if he knew why he was being interviewed, Dunkle stated he believed it was because “people kept saying” he was dating the juvenile victim, but he wasn’t. When asked if he’d ever had an intimate relationship with the victim, Dunkle said “No.” The complaint states that when asked if he had any physical contact with the victim, Dunkle related they would “horse around” by giving each other piggyback rides. Dunkle allegedly told police, “most of the time, she is on her phone, and I am on my phone.” According to the complaint, when pressed to be upfront and honest regarding his relationship with the victim, Dunkle stated, “nothing perverted happened,” but admitted he and the victim “started to like each other.” When further questioned regarding what he meant when he mentioned “nothing perverted,” Dunkle allegedly stated, “there was no sex or nothing,” and brought up the victim’s age. Dunkle was informed that his demeanor and hesitation in answering questions indicated he might be withholding details. He then allegedly admitted that he and the victim kissed “a couple of times,” within the past few days. Under further questioning, he also admitted he initiated the kissing, the complaint indicates. When questioned if he and the victim had done more than kiss, he was initially silent but then admitted to further sexual contact, according to the complaint. The victim was also interviewed on March 12 with a parent and a CYS caseworker present. The victim also admitted to the same sexual contact Dunkle had admitted to and provided a written statement, according to the complaint. Dunkle was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller at 5:35 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24. Unable to post $15,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Clarion County Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 31, with Magisterial District Judge Duane L. Quinn presiding. EDITOR’S NOTE 1: Extreme graphic details were not included due to the sexual nature of the alleged crimes. EDITOR’S NOTE 2: Several details were removed from this article to help protect the identity of the victim.
  6. NEWS Nurse sends heartbreaking text message to sister after contracting coronavirus Kious Jordan Kelly treated patients with the novel coronavirus before contracting it himself March 28, 2020, 11:05 AM EDT / Source: TODAY By Ronnie Koenig The sister of a New York City nurse who died this week after contracting the coronavirus is sharing her brother's heartbreaking final text messages — and a warning regarding the safety of all health care workers. Kious Jordan Kelly worked as an assistant nursing manager at Mount Sinai West treating patients stricken with the novel coronavirus. Kelly, a native of Lansing, Michigan, was hospitalized on March 17 after contracting the virus and died on Tuesday at age 48. He suffered from severe asthma and his sister, Marya Sherron, spoke to NBC News about her brother. “He just had this infectious energy," Sherron told NBC News producer Jay Blackman. "You felt good when he was around and you noticed when he left." Download the TODAY app for the latest coverage on the coronavirus outbreak. On March 18, Sherron received what would be Kelly's final text messages to her from the intensive care unit at Mount Sinai where he was on a ventilator. “Can’t talk because I choke and can’t breathe," he wrote. "I love you. Going back to sleep.” Sherron responded to her brother with words of encouragement. "You've pulled through so much. Love you and we are praying," she wrote. Hospitals in New York, currently the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S., have been experiencing a dire shortage of supplies and protective gear. Sherron told NBC News that she believes her brother's death could have been prevented, and that she hopes changes will be made going forward to prevent other health care workers from suffering the same fate. "I absolutely believe that he contracted this because of the lack of PPE in his unit and at his hospital — but that's across our nation," Sherron told Blackman, referring to personal protective equipment, which can include masks, gowns and gloves. Volunteers sewing supplies for health care workers MARCH 28, 202001:38 After photos emerged showing hospital workers at Mount Sinai posing for photos on social media wearing garbage bags, the hospital noted that the nurses pictured were wearing proper PPE under the garbage bags and provided a statement to TODAY "When it comes to staff wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), the facts are very clear: We always provide all our staff with the critically important PPE they need to safely do their job," said Lucia Lee, the senior director of media for the Mount Sinai Health System. "If an individual does not have their proper PPE, they do not go on the floor, period. Any suggestion otherwise is simply not accurate." Mount Sinai also addressed Kelly's untimely death earlier this week. "We are deeply saddened by the passing of a beloved member of our nursing staff," the hospital said in a statement. "The safety of our staff and patients has never been of greater importance and we are taking every precaution possible to protect everyone. But this growing crisis is not abating and has already devastated hundreds of families in New York and turned our frontline professionals into true American heroes. Today, we lost another hero — a compassionate colleague, friend and selfless caregiver." Sherron hopes that her younger brother's death will serve as a warning of what's to come if action is not taken. "There's only going to be more," Sherron told NBC News. "He's not the only one with asthma. He's not the only one with conditions who is going to work every day helping and fighting for people."
