Suspended State Trooper Agrees to Plea Deal

LUZERNE COUNTY -- A suspended state trooper -- accused of assaulting a child in Luzerne County -- has agreed to a plea deal.

Court papers say Corporal Patrick Finn allegedly got into bed with a 9-year-old child at a home in Mountain Top back in December.

The documents accuse Finn of touching the victim and saying he wanted to have sex with her.

As part of the deal, Finn will only plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of corruption of minors.

    None of you people know the whole story here. Cut the guy a break and don’t be so judgemental of this man.

    Please tell me this guy is going to get fired. His job is to uphold the law and he’s crawling in bed with a 9 year old.

    You can’t be a trooper with a felony, misdemeanor 1 or 2. Sex assault against a child is a misdemeanor 1. He can’t keep his job.

    They probably cut the deal so the victim wouldn’t have to testify against him. I don’t know if it was a family member but if it was they usually go easier because she would just be even more traumatized by thinking she ruined his life even though his blithering drunk self did that. Remember that she said she thinks he thought she was his girlfriend because he drinks a lot so she’s familiar with his drinking. He wouldn’t lose his job until the internal investigation is over which usually doesn’t start until this part is over. I don’t think he will be keeping his job.

    Of course, the same charges a normal petson wohkd recieve for supplying alcohol. Good thing this pervert chose to be a cop in police State Pa. Absolutely pathetic.

  • Good for goose, good for the gander

    When ‘good’ cops circle the wagons around a bad cop, there are no good cops.

    What a scumbag. Anyone else and no plea-deal allowed. How can this happen? Hope he gets the beat to hell.

    This is what happens when the grey shirts strike back. A 9 month sentence is a walk. While we don’t know the details, those have been withheld to protect, it stinks Basically it is sending a message that to defend your family…. I will say no more.

    Why on the hell would they ever give this POS a plea deal after this? It’s DISGUSTING! He should be registered as a sex offender! PERIOD!
