McHugh.

Delp III pleaded out in August of 2021 to the child porn charges, but has been out on bail since his original arrest in the summer of 2019 in lieu of 10 percent of $75,000.00

The victim, court documents say, told Delp III to stop, but he continued his the assault by pinning her down on a couch and holding her mouth so she couldn’t scream.

The woman told police she left the firehouse in tears and reported the alleged rape to a friend.

The victim also sought medical treatment for a forensic sexual assault exam in which she told medical personnel she was also bruised from the sexual assault.

Bensalem investigators sought and were approved for a “text takeover” posing as the victim during exchanges with Delp III.
