Weinstein is a lawyer who recently left his job as a Northampton Township supervisor.
The plot came to light after Drucker’s ex-husband noticed his teenage daughter had been given her mom’s old phone according to
He discovered the texts detailing the plan to spike a woman’s drink with high-proof alcohol so that she’d be unable to drive and be forced to go to Drucker’s house where a webcam was placed in the bathroom.
The couple planned for what they referred to as their ‘mission’ in late October 2017, investigators said.
Drucker then had dinner with the woman at a restaurant on the night of November 10, 2017, according to the criminal complaint.
During the dinner, Weinstein allegedly texted Drucker, instructing her on how to convince the victim to come back to her home.
‘Keep sober so you can make it happen and aren’t too drunk to win,’ Weinstein allegedly texted Drucker.
After the victim arrived at Drucker’s house, Weinstein sent her more text messages advising her on how to keep the victim there, police said. Weinstein also allegedly told Drucker to ask the victim sexually-charged questions and give her more alcohol.
‘Don’t worry about her. Get glasses on now,’ Weinstein allegedly texted the woman. ‘Get her naked and get [sic] door open.’
The victim later told police she remembered saying her wine ‘didn’t taste right’ and was sick the following morning.
Officials said they recovered photos of the victim while she was in Drucker’s bathroom.
Days later, Weinstein and Drucker had a text message conversation discussing plans for another ‘mission’ indicating that they wanted to find more victims.
Investigators say they found photos on Weinstein’s iPad showing him assaulting another unconscious woman in 2012.
That woman told police she wasn’t aware of the incident and didn’t consent to Weinstein touching her or taking the photos. Weinstein was charged with indecent assault in connection to that incident.
Bail is set for both Weinstein and Drucker at $300,000 and will next appear at a hearing on October 18.
