LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A star of the TV series “Amish Mafia” has been sentenced to prison after repeatedly driving with a suspended license.
A central Pennsylvania judge on Friday ordered 29-year-old John Schmucker to serve three months behind bars.
Schmucker’s most recent citation was issued Dec. 8. The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports (http://bit.ly/1gWzP64) it was his 10th such offense over the past several years.
Defense attorney Steven Breit says he’ll appeal and ask for house arrest. Breit says “driving without a license is not the crime of the century. It’s being treated that way.”
Another member of the cast pleaded guilty last summer to charges of eluding police and driving with a suspended license.
