Linda Lee Todd, 29, Philadelphia, who had her parole revoked last Sept. 27, filed a petition for immediate parole but it was denied by President Judge William E. Baldwin, who ruled she shall not be granted parole until Sunday, Dec. 23, unless she receives further misconducts.

Todd was was released on parole after serving six months in the county prison after pleading guilty to committing two burglaries of business places in Ashland in August 201o - the Dollar Bazaar Store and Smokin Joe's Tobacco Shop.

Michael Keith Crockford, 27, Hazleton, had his parole revoked by Judge Domalakes and he was remanded to the county prison to serve the balance of his sentence and his 917 days of liberty is disallowed and were added to his sentence.

Brenda Lynn Kufro, 42, Shenandoah, had her second re-parole revoked by Judge Domalakes and she was remanded to the county prison to serve the balance of her sentence. Her time of liberty will be established at the time she begins serving her sentence and therefore will determine a new maximum date. A bench warrant was issued to bring her into court.

Kufro had pleaded guilty in June 2009 to delivery and possession of a controlled substance and was placed under house arrest and probation.
