CP Industries worker waives prelim hearing
The preliminary hearing for a CP Industries worker accused of mailing DVDs of a questionable nature to other plant employees has been continued until March 11.
Brad Lee Chamberlain, 28, of Pittsburgh on Monday appeared briefly before McKeesport Magisterial District Judge Eugene Riazzi, who rescheduled the hearing at the request of the prosecution.
Assistant district attorney Bryan Hanlon asked for the continuance because CP Industries CEO Michael Larsen was not available to testify on Monday.
Larsen is one of five plant managers who received copies of a documentary video about mass violence.
Chamberlain is accused of sending the videos. He is charged with felony counts of terroristic threats and criminal use of a communication facility and five misdemeanor counts each of terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment, and a single count of disorderly conduct.
Chamberlain has been jailed since his Feb. 12 arrest on $100,000 bail.
At the request of his attorney, the judge reduced Chamberlain's bail to $50,000.
