lacka threats Hrywnak

SCRANTON — A man from Lackawanna County pleaded guilty Tuesday to harassing Spring Brook Township officials and a burning violation.

Authorities say Paul Hrywnak harassed township leaders and threatened them with hammers and pitchforks earlier this year.

According to court papers, it happened after they confronted him about doing work without proper permits, and illegally burning building materials at his apartment building on Route 690 near Moscow.

After pleading guilty, Hrywnak was given a one-year suspended sentence, ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, comply with all township ordinances, and limit his contact with township officials for a year.
