Even though more than a month apart, both Jamie Davis of McGrann and George Burdette, III of Cowansville were sentenced to two years of Intermediate Punishment, probation and community service for a burglary at Hiland Pharmacy in May 2012.
Last July, Christine Mecca of Ford City allegedly set herself on fire at an East Franklin Township gas station.
After Mecca pled guilty to recklessly endangering another person – in this case, three men and a woman who directly assisted her at the Shop `n Save fuel pumps – before Armstrong County Court of Common Pleas Judge James Panchik in March, she was sentenced before Panchik again yesterday at the Armstrong County Courthouse.
Mecca was sentenced to six months of probation for the second-degree misdemeanor and will have to continue undergoing counseling.
Nearly $450 in court fees and fines was also assessed.
Felony charges for risking a catastrophe were not prosecuted.
According to the original complaint, Mecca sprayed her 2007 red Kia Sportage, herself and the ground around her with gasoline shortly after 10:45AM July 9.
Meccha allegedly suffered sixth-degree burns to the lower half of her body as a result of the fire.
Also sentenced yesterday was McGrann’s Jamie Davis, who – along with Geroge Burdette, III of Cowansville – robbed Hiland Pharmacy in West Kittanning Borough in May 2012.
Charged with seven felony offenses, Davis plead guilty to two of those – Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession with Intent to Manufacture or Deliver and burglary – and was sentenced to two concurrent years within the state’s Intermediate Punishment Program and a year of probation.
Davis was credited with 159 days jail time and another 140 toward the probation sentence.
Some of the felony charges not prosecuted included criminal trespass, receiving stolen property and retail theft.
Davis will also have to undergo 30 hours of community service, pay more than $5,800 in total costs – the majority of which being restitution – and not enter the pharmacy premises.
Burdette was also sentenced to two years of Intermediate Punishment in April with a 142-day credit based on the possession charge, but will serve five years of probation for burglary and perform 50 hours of community service, as well as pay more than $5,600 in fines.
Both are not allowed to contact one another.
