SUNBURY -- The fire at the Northumberland County Prison has had an effect on the sentence of at least one inmate.

The district attorney says Amanda Dreher's nine to 23-month sentence has been reduced to five months.

In October 2014, the teacher's aide pleaded guilty to having sex with a student at Shamokin Area Junior Senior High School.

The DA's office said they are not aware of any other inmates filing motions for early release.

    Her sentence should stand, no matter what!!!!!!!!!!! Motions for early release should not even be considered. It is what it is. Just because the prison burned changes nothing about what she did!! That’s a bunch of crap!!!!!!!!

    If you’re going to commit a crime, Northumberland County is the country to do it in. They’re affraid to lock people up in this county.

  • Matt

    Her family must know Tony Rosini. She should be in there the whole 23 months. She needs time to rehab and think about what she did. That’s not going to be enough time.

  • Jim

    So this sexual predator will be out on the street in less time just because the prison caught fire? That’s not right. What a corrupt county.
