Linn Walker Arraigned on Lewd Behavior, Disorderly Conduct Charges

Macungie Council Member Linn Walker is expected to plead guilty on Oct. 29.

Macungie Councilman Linn Walker was arraigned Tuesday in Lehigh County Court on charges of open lewdness, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

An arraignment is a formal reading of charges at which the defendant sometimes pleads guilty or not guilty.

Walker, however, will do that on Oct. 29 when court documents say he is expected back in Lehigh County Court.

Neighbors called police to the W. Chestnut Street neighborhood on Aug. 3 after he Walker was seen urinating on shrubs next to his home.

The elected official who has been repeatedly asked to resign from council -- which he said he would do after he was arrested Aug. 3 -- remains firmly seated at every meeting and has told friends that other council members have told him not to resign.

Walker, 67, is free on $5,000 bail which he posted Aug. 27 after District Judge Donna Butler of Emmaus declined to dismiss the charges.

This man has been charged with open lewdness, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. His behavior has been despicable and irreprehensible. He has demonstrated absolutely no redeeming values as he did not resign as promised. So he is a liar as well. This council group has been made into a laughing stock. Macungie Politics...it is time to remove them all and start anew with decent people. Certainly the people of Macungie deserve better than this group.
