Former Bethel Park hockey coach pleads guilty to drug charges
A former Bethel Park assistant hockey coach pleaded guilty on Tuesday to drug charges and was given six months of probation, according to the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office.
Port Authority police arrested Kenneth Lehmann, 26, on Jan. 16 in the Sheraden park-and-ride lot off the West Busway. The Bethel Park Blackhawks of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League dismissed him from the team after his arrest. The team is not affiliated with the Bethel Park School District.
Lehmann and his attorney, Pat Thomassey, could not be reached for comment.
As Lehmann's first drug possession offense, sentencing guidelines called for six months' probation, DA spokesman Mike Manko said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
