ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Three eastern Pennsylvania residents have been convicted of summary harassment charges in a brawl following a baby shower last fall.

A Lehigh County district judge ordered 26-year-old Jackeline Vasquez, 28-year-old Daniel Torres and 29-year-old Solangie Colon Martinez to pay fines and court costs.

Defense attorneys said they planned to appeal.

State police said about 20 people were involved in the Oct. 25 melee in the parking lot of Wescosville Fire Co. and Social Hall in Lower Macungie Township.

The defendants said in court Monday that they were only trying to leave the brawl when they were attacked in the parking lot.

Judge Michael Faulkner said it was a shame that children had to witness such a display at an event intended “to celebrate a new life.”
