| February 11, 2012

NORRISTOWN – A disturbance at a Telford church has ended with a disorderly conduct conviction against a man who allegedly threatened to burn the church.

Nard Michael Sonsin, 53, who has no fixed address, was sentenced to time served to 23 months in jail after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge in connection with a July 2011 incident

at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on West Lincoln Avenue in Telford. Judge William R. Carpenter, who accepted a plea agreement in the matter, gave Sonsin credit for about seven months he already served in jail.
A charge of terroristic threats was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

An investigation of Sonsin began about 2 p.m. July 14, 2011, when Telford police responded to the church for a report of a disturbance. A pastor and church secretary, according to the criminal complaint, reported that Sonsin had been at the church “causing a problem and threatening them,” according to the criminal complaint.
