BELLEFONTE — The Penns Valley woman who robbed an Amish store last year and received a three-year state prison term was given more prison time Thursday.
Brittany Wingard, 21, was on probation for a corruption of minors charge when she robbed Speicher Bulk Foods in Aaronsburg in November. Court documents from the corruption of minors case are sealed and not available.
Her probation was revoked Thursday by Judge Bradley P. Lunsford, and he added another six months in state prison to her sentence.
Wingard was sentenced last week to spend three to seven years in state prison for the robbery and a separate burglary incident, during which police said she stole the weapon she used in the robbery.
Police had said Wingard held up a woman in the store, demanded money but ran off after the woman pushed the rifle away and yelled for someone to call 911.
Her attorney, Daniel Nelson, asked that the punishment be served concurrent to the three-year robbery and burglary sentence, saying she cooperated with authorities immediately after her arrest.
Lunsford refused, saying she got her break by not getting a five-year sentence on the robbery count.
The fact is that you violated the law while on our supervision, and you have to be held accountable for that act as well, Lunsford told her. We dont give package deals for these kinds of things.
