Andrew Schmucker, one of the stars of the TLC series “Breaking Amish” has been busted.
After failing a urine test, Schmucker, who is from Punxsutawney, was in a Gagnon hearing last week in the Court of Common Pleas in Brookville.
Schmucker was originally charged with theft by unlawful taking and had been placed on probation. He waived his right to a Gagnon 1 hearing and proceeded with a Gagnon 2 hearing before Judge John H. Foradora.
Foradora revoked Schmucker’s probation and resentenced him to serve a period of time in the Jefferson County Jail. He was released to Clearfield County to be sentenced there for a probation violation.
Upon his release from Clearfield County, Schmucker will be returned to Jefferson County to complete 45 days of inpatient treatment at the Gateway Center in Erie.
Foradora ordered the sentence to be split with a consecutive two years on the Restrictive Intermediate Punishment Program to run concurrent with the sentence imposed by Clearfield County.
All fines, costs and restitution will remain the same with credit given for any payments made.
“Breaking Amish” follows the story of several Amish youths who have elected to leave the order and adjust to life in New York and Los Angeles. Andrew is the brother of another Breaking Amish star, Abe Schmucker.
