Several defendants have been named in criminal charges filed before Magisterial District Judge Guy Haberl in Indiana.

Criminal complaints and affidavits of probable cause are not evidence of guilt in a criminal case. Defendants are entitled to legal representation and have the right to question the witnesses and evidence presented against them during preliminary hearings in the district court and at trials in the county court of common pleas.

Charged were:

• Ronald Pittman Jr., 24, of Philadelphia, charged March 12 by Indiana Borough police with defiant trespass and disorderly conduct at 3:44 a.m. March 10 at 380 Philadelphia St. Police responded to a report of a disorderly male. Store security was limiting the number of customers inside, and Pittman argued with security about waiting.

Police requested that Pittman either wait in line or leave, which he refused to do.

Pittman pleaded guilty to defiant trespass and was ordered to pay $450.50 in fines and costs. The disorderly conduct charge was withdrawn.

• Christopher Tokarsky, 19, of Phillips Road, Blairsville, charged March 13 by Indiana Borough police with possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and two summary driving infractions at 1:44 a.m. March 7 in the first block of South Fourth Street, following a traffic stop for turning without signaling and crossing over the centerline.

Tokarsky pleaded guilty to possession of a small amount of marijuana and was ordered to pay $662 in fines and costs. The remaining charges were withdrawn.


Charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia against Justin Jones, of Indiana, filed March 11, were withdrawn April 10.
