Bucks ex-prosecutor disbarred over sex with teen

Posted: July 22, 2012

HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has disbarred a former Bucks County prosecutor who admitted to having a sexual relationship with a teenage boy.

Anthony Cappuccio resigned as second-in-command in the Bucks District Attorney's Office in September 2008, after Richland Township police found him and a 17-year-old boy partially clothed in a parked car.

Pennsylvania Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille wrote in the decision that Cappuccio should be disbarred because he gained the trust of the boy's parents as a public official and led a church youth group, the Allentown Morning Call reported Friday.

Cappuccio argued that he shouldn't be disbarred, saying a five-year suspension was appropriate. He pleaded guilty to child endangerment, corruption of minors, and related offenses. He served six months in Northampton County Prison and is on probation until 2017. - AP
