Bad week in court for Schuylkill man
In a three day period Samuel Thomas Steffie, 41, of 600 Railroad St., Schuylkill Haven, was found guilty by two juries in trials held this week in Schuylkill County court.
He was found guilty of two counts of selling or furnishing alcoholic beverages to minors after a one day trial before Judge Jacqueline Russell but was found not guilty of charges of simple assault, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and three counts of corruption of minors.
On Monday he was found guilty by a jury of receiving veterans' grave markers and of selling the grave markers to a scrap dealer after a trial before Judge Charles M. Miller.
Both judges have deferred sentencing to a later date and ordered a pre-sentence investigative report prepared by the adult probation department.
