N. Huntingdon man to serve time for assault, robbery
A North Huntingdon man was sentenced Tuesday to 111⁄2 to 23 months in prison for assaulting and robbing a man behind a Hempfield shopping center last year.
Andrew Jeremy Magill, 22, pleaded guilty before Judge Debra Pezze to a robbery charge.
The victim was present in court and Assistant District Attorney Karen Patterson said the man and his family would like to “put this behind them.”
They declined to address the court.
Last June 7, the victim, who was 29, had approached Magill's wife, who was 17, at the Longbada Lounge on West Pittsburgh Street in Greensburg and allegedly offered to pay the teen for sexual favors, according to police.
Before the bar closed, Magill and his wife invited the victim to drink with them. They drove the man behind the Shop ‘n Save off Route 136, where Magill assaulted him around 3 a.m. and robbed him of $569, police said.
Police said the victim suffered forehead lacerations that required stitches and the assault loosened metal pins that had been recently placed in the man's back.
Magill entered pleas in four other unrelated cases Tuesday in what Pezze called a “one-year crime spree.”
The other charges included driving under the influence, defiant trespass, fleeing or attempting to elude police and corruption of minors for providing alcohol to minors.
A five-year probation term will follow Magill's incarceration. He was ordered to report to the Westmoreland County Prison in Hempfield on June 21.
