Where's Dallas?

Reporter Janice Morse of the Enquirer's West Chester bureau filed this report:

You can’t help but be curious about what happened before – and after -- an officer discovered none other than ex-judge Dallas Powers at the Washington Township home of Libbie Gerondale Sexton, his alleged former lover, recently.

A Warren County sheriff’s report says that, someone at the residence dialed 911 and hung up – but told an dispatcher that "everything was fine" just before 11 p.m. on Jan. 27. Nevertheless, a deputy showed up at Sexton’s doorstep, and she told him he wasn’t needed.

But a man – whom the officer identified as Powers – came to the door. Sexton told the deputy that another man pulled into the driveway, but then left without causing a problem.

Sexton kept shushing the ex-jurist, the deputy said: "Mr. Powers would try to talk and she kept telling him it was her house and she did not want a report."

The judge may have been Sexton’s boss at one point, but this exchange suggests she’s the one in charge now.

Powers, a Warren County Court judge since 1989, resigned late last year after he and Sexton – who had worked for Powers as a probation officer -- were convicted on several misdemeanor charges stemming from overtime paid to Sexton, their courthouse trysts, Powers’ treatment of witnesses against them.

Powers, 71, was convicted of intimidation, public indecency and aiding and abetting the receiving of improper compensation. Sexton, 35, was convicted of attempted theft in office and public indecency.
