The “Bra Bandit” is Sentenced

11-and–a-half to 23 months in Montgomery County Prison, that’s the sentence that was handed down to an Upper Dublin man for his actions in Upper Merion in December of 2011 and may of last year. According to authorities, 38-year-old Kornwell Chan, known as the bra bandit, broke into the home of a Springfield woman and stole her underwear and bra. Chan also used a video device to look up a woman’s dress at a store in King of Prussia. Judge Thomas Branca told the court “the commonality of these crimes is perversion.” Judge Branca also ordered Chan to undergo sex treatment during and after his prison term. Chan faces an additional 8-years of probation and 300 hours of community service.

Judge Benz was a guest Wednesday on the WNPV program Legally Speaking.
