JERSEY SHORE - Just two days before their trial was scheduled to begin, two borough men admitted stealing a piece of heavy equipment and crashing it into parked vehicles and a building.
Bradley Breon, 26, and James Davis, 22, entered pleas to charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle Monday in Lycoming County Court, according to court officials.
Breon and Davis admitted to Judge Kenneth D. Brown that they took a Caterpillar vehicle on March 17 that was used to plow snow off the grocery store parking lot. They said they drove the vehicle down streets, hitting cars and a storage shed, according to Robert Cronin, Breon's attorney with the public defender's office.
Breon pleaded "no contest" to the charge, Cronin said. "He admitted it but was incapable of remembering the details," Cronin said.
Brown sentenced Breon to three to six months in County Prison. He already has served 189 days, Cronin said.
Davis, who was represented by Attorney Kyle Rude, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months probation, court records stated.
Restitution in the case was covered by insurance. Assistant District Attorney Paul Petcavage was scheduled to be prosecutor at the trial that was set to take place before Judge Richard A. Gray starting Wednesday.
