Morris Plains man also faces sexual assault charges.
A former Parsippany Boy Scout leader from Morris Plains has been indicted on child pornography charges. Stephen Corcoran, 45, was indicted Tuesday on charges including one count of second-degree distribution of child pornography and 10 counts of fourth-degree possession of child pornography. Acting Morris Prosecutor Fredric Knapp said Corcoran showed an 18-year-old male friend child pornography in the fall of 2011.

Wednesday, February 20
Emergency responders spent two hours late Wednesday afternoon at the scene of an overturned tractor trailer in the area of exit 41 off Interstate 287 in Parsippany. New Jersey State Police were at the site of the accident, as was Parsippany-Troy Hills District 6 Fire Association. Two lanes became blocked in the 4 p.m. hour along 287 south as authorities dealt with the mishap and resulting diesel fuel spill. This created a massive backup that extended through the evening rush. The scene finally was cleared just after 6 p.m. Police were not available to offer further details.

Large, skeptical crowd—most in opposition—came to Parsippany High to address economic development plan that would bring market to Waterview Plaza.
A revised Waterview Plaza development plan was presented before a loudly skeptical audience at Monday night's Parsippany Planning Board meeting. About 200 residents turned out for the gathering, which was held at Parsippany High School. The last time the board attempted to continue hearings on the proposal at Town Hall on Dec. 17, a fire official shut down the meeting because the crowd the discussion attracted exceeded fire standards. The hearing was rescheduled and relocated. The large numbers attest to strong public reaction against a plan to put a new Whole Foods Market, another unnamed retailer and a 72-unit upscale townhouse community on 26 now-undeveloped acres of Waterview Plaza zoned for office space. That was in evidence Monday …

A Morris Plains man and former Parsippany Boy Scout leader accused in January of showing child pornography to a boy was arrested again Thursday on charges he molested two teenage boys in the 1990s, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said.

Christie, Guadagno and other officials celebrate groundbreaking of real estate giant's new headquarters.

The owner of the Lake Drive home that burned Monday says the damage was worse than expected.
Andrea Antonelli-Rella is still reeling a bit after her home at 13 Lake Drive was hit Monday night by what preliminary fire reports show was a chimney fire. At the same time, the veterinarian says she feels fortunate because she and her husband were not hurt, and neither were her pets. And she is convinced that all are well because the Rellas followed an emergency plan. "My husband is a police officer in Maplewood, so he is the man with the plan," she said. "He says to always have an idea [of what to do] when your house catches fire." Apparently, Nick Rella had a plan and it worked. His wife said they were able to get themselves plus a combination of parrots and macaws totalliing six birds and three German shepherds out of the burning …
