Man admits stealing money from mother
An Albrightsville man admitted in Carbon County court on Monday to stealing cash from his mother.
He was one of six defendants in pending criminal cases to enter a guilty plea before Judge Steven R. Serfass.
Shawn Michael Melleski, 27, pleaded to one count of theft for an incident on July 12, 2016. He admitted taking $3,000 in cash from his mother from her Penn Forest Township home. Charges were filed by state police at Fern Ridge for an incident on July 12, 2016.
Melleski is currently an inmate in a federal prison serving a 36-month term on drug charges.
Serfass placed him on probation for 24 months, consecutive to his federal term, and ordered he make restitution to his mother for the $3,000, get a drug and alcohol evaluation and follow any recommendation for treatment and render 100 hours of community service when paroled.
