Judge refuses to allow bond for former Pittsburgh schools principal

An Allegheny County judge this morning upheld the bond revocation for a former Pittsburgh Public Schools principal convicted last week of exposing himself in a McCandless gym.

Defense attorney Phil DiLucente argued in a hearing before Common Pleas Judge Donna Jo McDaniel that his client, Alfonzo DeIuliis, 37, is not a flight risk and would have agreed to electronic home monitoring at his parents' home in Allison Park.

Allegheny County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Chernosky contended that Mr. DeIuliis is a convicted felon and will have to register as a sex offender.

Judge McDaniel agreed to move up his sentencing to June 24 from July 29.

Mr. DeIuliis, former principal of Brookline K-8, was found guilty Wednesday of open lewdness, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors, harassment and indecent exposure for three separate victims at the LA Fitness in McCandless between February and August 2013.

Mr. DiLucente has said it’s possible Mr. DeIuliis could face a years-long prison term if the penalties are run consecutively because his client was found guilty of two felonies and several misdemeanors.
