A judge from the village of Intercourse, Pennsylvania has been charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly giving women acorns which he had hollowed out and stuffed with condoms.
Fifty-eight-year-old Isaac Stoltzfus, a District Court judge who presides over low level cases, handed the acorns to women near the state Capitol on September 21. It says the women “were offended when they discovered the contents.”
Two women who had been walking in the Soldiers Grove area called police.
"An individual was handing out acorns to some women who were offended when they discovered the contents in the acorn included a condom," Lancaster Online quoted Edward Myslewicz, a spokesman for the Department of General Services, as saying.
Pennsylvania Capitol Police went to the area and found Stoltzfus, who claimed that what he had done was a joke.
Last year Stoltzfus, who ran as a Republican, was reelected to a six-year term on the bench. He has been a judge for more than 18 years.
Lancaster Online reported that Stoltzfus was not available for comment and his staff referred calls to attorney Heidi Eakin, who was not immediately available for comment. Lancaster County President Judge Joseph C. Madenspacher declined to comment.
Intercourse is surrounded by areas of Amish farmland and its web site promotes it as place where "people live by a simpler way of life.”
