Those cases involve juvenile male students of Scherbanic’s karate dojo, the “Tang Soo Do Karate College" in North Versailles.
The complaint said Scherbanic drew diagrams of one of the target’s homes to show his cellmate where a propane tank was that could “be exploded to kill multiple residents.”
Scherbanic also identified people that his cellmate could recruit to help carry out the plot as well as hide the bodies, the complaint said.
There were also plans to destroy the creditability of someone who was going to testify against Scherbanic in the sex-assault trial. Sherbanic told his cellmate to “plant drugs, or a gun or possibly child porn,” the complaint said.
Scherbanic was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault, endangering the welfare of children, corruption of minors and indecent assault in those cases.
The complaint also alleged Scherbanic had been stashing ground up pain pills in his cell in case the plan did not work, so he could commit suicide.
The investigation was conducted with the assistance of the Jail Administrative Investigators and detectives from the district attorney’s office.
