Bartender charged with serving minors denied ARD
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A bartender charged with serving alcohol to three underage Pennsylvania men who later died when their pickup crashed into a pond won’t be allowed to enter a special probation program for first-time offenders.
The Kittanning Leader-Times reported that an Armstrong County judge on Thursday refused to let Karly Ann Good, 23, of Rural Valley, enter the program, which would allow her arrest record to be expunged if she completed the probation.
The judge says the deaths of Sean Titus, 20; Zane McMillen, 19; and Cody Douglas, 18, all of Kittanning, were too serious to allow that.
Police said Good was the only bartender working the night the three men drowned.
As a result, Good must now decide whether she wants to plead guilty or stand trial on charges that she served the men at the Final Score Saloon in Rural Valley before they crashed shortly after midnight on May 5, 2013.
