CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A former Hagerstown resident charged with raping two women in Franklin County almost three years ago appeared to be on the verge of a plea agreement Friday in Franklin County Court, but instead has asked for a jury trial.
"We thought we had a plea agreement ... apparently Mr. Srun just decided to change his mind," said Assistant District Attorney David Rahauser, referring to Pov Srun, who is charged with sexually assaulting two women kidnapped in their own vehicles from shopping center parking lots in Waynesboro, Pa., and Chambersburg in September 2004.
"Mr. Srun wants to exercise his constitutional right to a trial," said his attorney, Gary Knaresboro. He also declined to comment on any details of a proposed plea agreement.
Srun, 36, formerly of 838 W. Washington St. in Hagerstown, is charged by Waynesboro and Chambersburg police with two counts each of rape, kidnapping, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, terroristic threats, robbery of a motor vehicle, theft and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, according to court records.
