Friday, Garlock was sentenced on nine criminal charges.
Rusty Garlock will spend at least a year half behind bars, according to a plea deal in Huntingdon County court.
“We’re satisfied with the plea that was entered. I think the judge summed it up best: Had the victim, Mr. Garlock, stopped this case would have been summary offense. I tend to think maybe alcohol could have potentially been involved but it became a very dangerous situation,” said Huntingdon County District Attorney David Smith.
In court, Garlock apologized, but the judge said when you put the officer at risk there are consequences.
HUNTINGDON COUNTY – Rusty Garlock will spend at least a year and a half behind bars, according to a plea deal in Huntingdon County court.
“We believe he was remorseful and that (if) he was to go back in time I’m sure he would have tried to change it. But you know it was his actions, his decision and now he has to pay the consequence,” Smith said.
