West Mifflin man's sentencing continued in endangerment case

Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014, 12:56 a.m.
 

Sentencing has been continued until Sept. 10 for a West Mifflin man charged with reckless endangerment during a June 2013 traffic stop in Duquesne.

Timothy J. Minkus, 32, of West Mifflin pleaded guilty on May 27 to nine counts before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Donna Jo McDaniel.

One count was reduced by Allegheny County prosecutors from felony aggravated assault while driving under the influence to the misdemeanor reckless endangerment count.

Minkus entered guilty pleas to three counts of driving under the influence, all misdemeanors, and five other summary driving violations.

In a separate matter on May 27, McDaniel sentenced Minkus to two years of probation for his role in the McKeesport area Operation Pork Chop gambling ring.

She then scheduled sentencing in the traffic case to Tuesday, when it was continued.

Allegheny County assistant district attorney Lee Goldfarb is the prosecutor, while Minkus is represented by Monroeville attorney Patrick Thomassey.
