Ex-Kappa Delta Rho President Charged With Criminal Trespassing At Former KDR House

Joshua Tonn, the former president of Kappa Delta Rho, was charged with criminal trespassing this week after he was identified as the individual who walked into Kappa Sigma on September 16.

Kappa Sigma now occupies 420 E. Prospect Ave. where KDR used to live.

According to the criminal complaint filed on Thursday, video evidence confirmed Tonn was the suspect who woke up a resident early in the morning. He identified himself as the former president of KDR and told him he lived in that room last year, as first reported by The Daily Collegian

Tonn entered the house through the side door and refused to leave at first. “I just want to sit where I used to sit,” Tonn told them. KDR was evicted from the house over the summer.

Tonn’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 12.

Ed. note: Tonn’s attorney clarifies that he is not accused of breaking into Kappa Sigma, but walking through an unlocked door, which is a less serious form of criminal trespass.
