The former swimming coach trembled and sobbed as he admitted to having an affair with his 14-year-old protegee. Perhaps, authorities say, he loved the young girl and wanted to help her achieve her dream: to swim for the Germantown Academy swim team. But he went too far, prosecutors say: He broke the law. Joseph Weber's shaved head was lowered, his voice barely audible, as he pleaded guilty in Montgomery County Court yesterday to charges of involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and corruption of a minor.

It was the kind of pleasant weather that makes us want to shout, to kick up our heels or, like 4-year-old Carolynn Dussell of South Philadelphia, to sit among the dandelions in FDR Park and blow our horn. Look for more of the same today.

Restaurateur Alex Capasso, accused of molesting and taking sexually explicit photographs of a young girl, was described in court Monday as a "violent sociopath" by the child's mother, who asked a federal judge in Camden to turn down his request for bail. U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen M. Williams agreed that Capasso, 42, of Collingswood, should remain jailed pending trial because of the severity of the crimes and the age of the victims, and because he would pose a threat to the community.

Two teenage boys face criminal charges after their parents turned them in to police Friday for robbing a 9-year-old girl of $13. Philadelphia Police sent surveillance footage to news outlets Friday, seeking information on two suspects who robbed the third-grader in East Germantown. The two teens were caught on camera around 8:30 a.m. Friday, watching the girl make a purchase inside the Jaquez Mini Market at Wakefield and East Ashmead Streets. The 13- and 14-year-old boys went outside and waited for the girl, police said, before approaching her and grabbing her wallet.

A teenage girl lies moaning on an examining table, feet in stirrups under a sheet, a doctor hovering over her. "Stop," the girl pleads. "You lied to me. You said it wouldn't hurt. " "Be quiet, you said you wanted a choice," the doctor snarls, and completes the abortion. Happy Halloween from the Abundant Life Christian Center. This is the third year of the church's Hell House program, a slick holiday production that aims to show teenagers the wages of what it regards as sin. The pitfalls of modern temptation - abortion, homosexuality, date rape, satanism and alcoholism - are featured in lurid detail in Hell House.

I THINK it is a joke that the Police Department is waiting until Susanna Goihman is ready to talk about who was driving her car, or if she was, on the night that Kayla Peter was run down. How can she sleep at night? I didn't know you could turn yourself in when you're ready to. Things have surely changed. My prayers are with the family of that young girl. Deborah Bennett Philadelphia

ONCE AGAIN, the city of Philadelphia leaves me gasping with indignation. A model citizen with a wife and child is wrongly arrested for rape and assault, and instead of the city being apologetic, they're trying to deport him on a trumped-up old charge. Meanwhile, the woman who more than likely killed a young girl in a hit-and-run more than a month ago has not yet been questioned by the police. Who does she know? Can't this city every make sense?

Liz Dow is CEO of Leadership Philadelphia It's a late afternoon on a warm spring day. I stand watching passersby on a crowded downtown street. As I take in the normal ebb and flow of activity, in my left peripheral vision I notice a man slowly opening a door in a curious crouching position. He continues to crouch as he emerges, with one hand behind him. I yell, "Stop!" He keeps moving. I yell it again, much louder, but still he does not. My adrenaline surges as his arm moves.

ISSUE | ADOPTION Finally, a chance to find my birth mom My mom in heaven - you adopted me, loved me, and left me with so many unanswered questions. The young girl who gave birth to me - I know you loved me, I know you were forced to give me away, and I understand you could not keep me. If you are searching for me, I know you cannot find me, because I cannot find you. Our records are sealed; our existence is hidden away. We were told to forget - how can we? I think about my mom in heaven, how I miss her and wish she could have answered my questions.

Montgomery County health officials are searching for a middle-aged man they think may have been exposed to rabies this week when he came to the aid of a young girl in Lower Merion as she was attacked by a rabid raccoon. Health Department officials for the county said the man, described as a 6-foot white male in his 50s or 60s, encountered the girl Thursday around 4 p.m. while driving near the Bridlewild Trail in Gladwyne as she attempted to stave off a raccoon that had begun attacking her leg. The man, whom authorities are calling a "Good Samaritan," stopped his car and beat the raccoon with a hockey stick until it released its clamp on the girl.

In the scope of all things teenybop, Alessia Cara is not your typical kid pop star. Not if her anthemic "Here" (which just hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, finally toppling Drake's "Hotline Bling") or her accompanying Know-It-All album on Def Jam Records are any indication. This weekend, Cara is set to play the Theatre of Living Arts on South Street to prove that, despite "Here's" antisocial rhetoric, she's ready to party. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter - Canadian-born Alessia Caracciolo - grew up in an Italian household as a theater kid who wrote her own poetry.

IN THE DOCUMENTARY about the making of "Star Wars," the venerable Walter Cronkite lauded the first movie for lifting the United States out of our "depression of the '70s," the mood induced by the trauma of Vietnam and the skullduggery of Watergate. We were ready to believe in heroes again, and to affirm an intergalactic morality tale wrapped in dazzling special effects. Since we knew not our preternatural need for "Star Wars," it hit us with the force of The Force. We can't reasonably expect J.J. Abrams to deliver the same kind of experience that George Lucas did back then, nailing the zeitgeist with a product we couldn't ask for because we didn't know we needed it. We have asked and asked; finally, he's delivered an engaging flick.

A former Main Line school tennis coach was sentenced to five years' probation Friday for sending suggestive text messages to a 15-year-old girl on his team. Charles Meredith, 54, is to be under sex-offender supervision during his probation but will not have to register as a sex offender. He pleaded guilty in Montgomery County Court in June to one count of corruption of minors. Meredith coached tennis at the Country Day School of the Sacred Heart in Radnor, and was arrested in December 2013 after the 15-year-old reported to police that he had kissed her and sent her inappropriate text messages.
