Unity woman gets probation for boyfriend’s shooting

Rich Cholodofsky

A Unity woman pleaded guilty Thursday to shooting her boyfriend during a domestic dispute last year.

Brandy Harr, 41, told a judge it was in her best interest to plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of simple assault in connection to the March 9, 2018, shooting in her apartment that left her boyfriend Ronald Harr with a leg wound.

Brandy Harr was sentenced by Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court Judge Tim Krieger to serve one year on probation.

Harr told the judge she did not remember the shooting. Her boyfriend, in court on Thursday, said he agreed with the plea bargain and that he wanted to resume his relationship with Harr.

Police said Harr became violent during an altercation, punched him and threw objects at him. Prosecutors dismissed more serious charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

“He’s a pretty forgiving man,” Krieger said of the victim after he imposed Harr’s sentence.

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 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.
