Shumate Sentenced

Mike Shumate will spend 180 days in the Armstrong County Jail, pay a five thousand dollar fine, and then spend eight years on probation.

A very humble Shumate sat inside the courtroom while his defense team plea bargained with prosecutors.

The former sheriff of Potter County was found guilty of engaging in criminal activity involving bribery late Thursday night by an all female jury.

Several witnesses showed up to testify on Shumate's behalf. His attorney can appeal this decision.
