Defendant gets prison term for Lansford home invasion
Another defendant in a home invasion incident in Lansford was sentenced this week in Carbon County court.
Justin Scott Nahf, 21, of Dublin, Bucks County, was sentenced on Thursday by Judge Steven R. Serfass to serve 12 to one day less 24 months in the county prison on a charge of robbery.
Nahf was one of four arrested for entering the home of Derek Hunsicker, of E. Snyder Ave., on Dec. 18, 2009, and assaulting the homeowner and his brother, Rick, 23.
Arrested with Nahf were Ryan K. Dillman, 23, his brother, Jarred Dillman, 20, both of Palmerton, and Joshua Barlip, 19, of Lansford.
The four forced their way into the home about 9:24 p.m. One of the four, Barlip, had a gun. At the time of his arrest Nahf denied having a gun but admitted he had a baseball bat. The four went to the home for "money and drugs" according to the police.
Serfass also ordered Nahf to supply a DNA sample and pay the $250 fee, get both a mental health and drug and alcohol evaluations and follow any recommendations for treatment, have no contact with the victims, get his General Education Diploma (GED), and pay a $50 per month supervision fee while on parole. He was given credit for 48 days spent in jail on the charge.
On charges of institutional vandalism and persistent disorderly conduct, for an incident on Dec. 12, 2008, at 156 W. Abbott St., Lansford, Serfass placed Nahf on probation for one year on the vandalism count and six months on the conduct charge. He was also ordered to pay restitution to the borough of Lansford for $157.65 damages caused to borough property.
All sentences run concurrent with each other and concurrent with a nine to 23 month prison term Nahf is presently serving in Bucks County for aggravated assault.
