Upper Bucks Man Sentenced to 4 to 8 Years for Assault on Woman

August 23, 2016

Contact: Matthew Lannetti, 215.340.8018, mslannetti@buckscounty.org

A Kintnersville man was sentenced Monday to serve four to eight years in state prison for beating a woman at their home, breaking the victim’s shoulder and several ribs.

Dan Kroemmelbein, 61, pleaded no contest in Bucks County Common Pleas Court to charges of aggravated assault and false imprisonment in the Feb. 12 attack.

The beating took place in a Nockamixon Township home that Kroemmelbein was sharing with the 51-year-old victim. She told police that Kroemmelbein got drunk and struck her repeatedly with the leg of a wooden chair that he had broken.

The woman told police that Kroemmelbein became especially enraged after dropping and breaking his cell phone while waving his arms at her. She said he broke a chair, grabbed one of the broken chair legs, and beat her in the shoulders, torso and legs.

After the attack, the victim told police, Kroemmelbein would not allow her to leave, threatening to find her and kill her if she tried. She escaped from the house after he fell asleep, making her way to a residence in Williams Township, Northampton County, where she called State Police.

Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. accepted the terms of a negotiated plea agreement, but questioned Kroemmelbein closely about why he was pleading no contest instead of guilty.

Kroemmelbein replied that while he admits striking the victim and causing her injuries, he denies beating her with a chair leg.

"It’s just very unfortunate that this happened,” Kroemmelbein told Bateman. “I feel horrible about it.”

Kroemmelbein, an Army veteran, said he has a drinking problem and was intoxicated when he attacked the woman.

The victim attended the hearing but did not wish to address the court, said Deputy District Attorney Matthew Lannetti, who prosecuted the case.

In addition to the prison sentence, Kroemmelbein was ordered to pay $1,650 in restitution to the victim.

Approved for release by Christopher Rees, Deputy District Attorney.
