NO CRIMINAL RECORD!
Does anyone know why the DA’s office seized $920 dollars from Brian Thomas Gately on January 14, 2019 (see below and click here to read it in its entirety)? I cannot find a criminal record whatsoever for Brian Gately in Lancaster County.
** Someone sent the below Order in under the comments under yesterday’s post. This is the signed Order Judge Leonard G. Brown, III issued yesterday after the hearing on District Attorney Craig Stedman’s civil forfeiture records.
* It was also Judge Howard Knisely who accepted Shaunta Powell’s negotiated guilty plea and sentenced her to nine to 23 months in jail (pictured left). Her bail was $100,000 cash and she has been in Lancaster County Prison since September 30, 2018 (click here for, “Woman gets prison time for scamming Lancaster County man out of $17,000 through Facebook messenger”).
WILL SHE GO TO JAIL?
The lead story on Lancaster Online this morning is another white woman charged with theft (click here). She has not spent a day in jail and has been free on $25,000 unsecured bail since November.
We know that black women go to jail for theft in Lancaster County. Will this white woman go to jail? She’s currently scheduled to have a “status conference” before Judge Howard Knisely on May 9th. LIP News will follow her case.
