Burglary Charge Against Brookline Man Withdrawn
An update from a February Facchiano Contracting break-in and more Judge Barton news.
The following results are from recent hearings held in the Caste Village office of Magistrate David J. Barton of District Court 05-2-17:
- Baldwin Township police charged John Chambers, 28, of Cameron, WV—and more recently, of Barbadoes Avenue in Pittsburgh's Brookline neighborhood—with breaking into a Michael Facchiano Contracting property on Feb. 1 and driving a stolen truck through a Facchiano security gate and onto McNeilly Road. Chambers has pleaded guilty to charges of trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and driving without a license. He has been sentenced to 11.5-23 months of confinement and four years of probation. A burglary charge has been withdrawn.
- Baldwin Township police charged David Charles Kalmeyer, 31, of 1131 Dormont Ave. in Dormont Borough, with DUI on June 1. Kalmeyer's July 24 hearing before Barton was waived, and he faced that charge at the Allegheny County Courthouse on Sept. 6, where he was granted a Nov. 2 accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD) hearing. That hearing resulted in a sentence of 12 months of probation.
- Whitehall police charged Brenton Fawcett, 37, of 353 Brookline Blvd., with robbery, receiving stolen property, retail theft and defiant trespass on Nov. 3. On Nov. 13, Barton withdrew Fawcett's robbery charge, but his remaining charges were waived for a Jan. 3 hearing at the Allegheny County Courthouse.
