Suspended Pittsburgh school principal denied bail on indecent exposure conviction

An Allegheny County Common Pleas Court judge on Tuesday declined to grant bail for a suspended Pittsburgh Public Schools principal convicted of exposing himself and propositioning three people in the locker room of a McCandless fitness club.

A jury last week found Alfonzo DeIuliis, 37, of Hampton guilty of indecent exposure, unlawful contact with a minor and related charges tied to three incidents in the shower or sauna at LA Fitness between February and August 2013.

Judge Donna Jo McDaniel, who will sentence him on June 24, cited the fact that DeIuliis is a convicted felon in her decision.

DeIuliis has been suspended without pay from his $101,499-a-year job as principal of Brookline K-8 school since his arrest in August. School district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh said that “in light of the conviction, (the administration) will be a making a recommendation to the board for his termination.”

DeIuliis' attorney, Phil DiLucente, argued his client is not a flight risk or a danger to the community.

“Since the judge moved up the sentencing date, that gives me and my client good perspective as to his future,” DiLucente said. “We are hopeful a county sentence will be imposed that is consistent with his convictions.”

Minimum sentences under a year are served in the county jail; those over a year, in state prison.
