A Pennsylvania judge in a Bucks County court upheld all charges, Thursday, April 12, against Aimers, including indecent assault, indecent exposure, imprisonment of a minor and related offenses in a Nov. 2018 incident at his wedding reception. The groom is accused of forcing himself on a teenage waitress at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro.

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. — A judge in Pennsylvania has upheld all charges against a groom accused of forcing himself on a teenage waitress at his wedding reception before he was taken from the hall in handcuffs over a drunken brawl.

Matthew Aimers, of Willingboro, New Jersey, arrived at a Bucks County court Thursday with his new wife at his side. The judge upheld all charges, including indecent assault, indecent exposure, imprisonment of a minor and related offenses in the November incident at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro.

Aimers’ attorney, Louis Busico, says his client “denies and rejects” the accusations by the waitress, who is now 18. He says Aimers’ wife, Kayla, “150 percent supports him.”

An affidavit says the waitress had spurned Aimers’ advances during the reception. Police allege he followed her into a bathroom and sexually assaulted her.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says the accuser also testified on Thursday, but spectators were removed from the courtroom.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
