FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – An Oil City woman was arraigned on Wednesday on charges from an incident where she allegedly kicked in the door of a home in Franklin.

Court documents indicate 26-year-old Jessica Lane Horn was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland at 10:19 a.m. on Wednesday, October 28, on the following charges:

– Criminal Trespass-Break Into Structure, Felony 2 (two counts)

She remains free on $10,000.00 unsecured bail.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred in Franklin in mid-August.

According to a criminal complaint, around 9:40 p.m. on August 16, Franklin Police were dispatched to a residence on 14th Street for a report of a possible domestic disturbance.

At the scene, police found Jessica Horn outside of the residence.

According to the complaint, an investigation then found that Horn had entered a known victim’s residence, without the right to do so, through the front door and engaged in a physical and verbal altercation with the victim.

The complaint states the victim reported he was able to force Horn out of the residence by shoving her through the front door. The victim told police that Horn then forced her way back inside by kicking the front door in.

The charges were filed through Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland’s office on August 20.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. on November 4, with Judge Kirtland presiding.
