Lansford man has probation revoked; sent to state prison
A Lansford man was one of three who had their probations revoked after hearings in the Schuylkill County court.
Anthony Edward Pascoe, 26 , of 201 Kline Avenue, Lansford, had his probation revoked by Senior Judge D. Michael Stine.
Stine, following a hearing, found that Pascoe violated three conditions of his probation by failing to report timely to his probation officer, he possessed illegal drugs, and he failed to keep up his payments schedule of fines and costs.
He was re-sentenced on a charge of simple assault to serve 10 to 24 months in a state correctional facility with credit for serving 60 days in the county prison . Pascoe pleaded guilty in Aug. 2010, to assaulting two people in the parking lot of a restaurant in Tamaqua and was placed on probation. It was revoked in January 2011 and he was re-sentenced to again serve a probation term but again violated the conditions.
Justine M. Meyers, 28, Pottsville, had his probation revoked by Judge John E. Domalakes for violating terms of his probation. He was re-sentenced on a charge of disorderly conduct to serve four to 12 months in the county prison with credit for spending 30 days in prison. His maximum date for release was reset at Aug. 16, 2012.
Meyers had pleaded guilty in November 2008 to a charge escaping from custody of law officials and disorderly conduct and was placed on probation. It was revoked in June 2009 and he served time in prison and was out on probation when the second violation occurred.
Robert Britting, 27, Pottsville, had his parole revoked by President Judge William E. Baldwin for violating its terms and he was recommitted to the county prison to serve the balance of his original sentence and his 232 days of liberty were disallowed. The court will not consider any application for parole until Sept. 1, 2013.
Britting pleaded guilty in November 2006 to credit card fraud and was placed on parole. His parole was again revoked because he failed to report on time to his probation officer or keep up payments on his costs and fines.
