Harassment citation against township supervisor upheld

REEDSVILLE –Monday afternoon, a summary harassment citation was upheld for Steve Dunkle–Menno Township Supervisor and former Mifflin County Commissioner–at his summary trial before Magisterial District Judge Kent A. Smith.

The accuser testified that Dunkle visited her home twice without invitation, most recently in October. According to her, this behavior followed the arrival of an unsigned letter she believed was written by Dunkle.

The accuser contacted police after her receipt of the letter.

Dunkle said he had visited the accuser’s house for an apology. He denied writing the letter and claimed her suspicion of this was why he sought the apology.

Dunkle was ordered to pay court costs.
