NESQUEHONING, Pa. (UPI) -- A Nesquehoning, Pa., man who showed up drunk
to the sentencing for his second drunken driving offense is likely to
receive a harsher jail sentence. 

Bailiffs removing Joshua Beury from the courtroom Tuesday after he had
been sentenced raised suspicions that the man had been drinking, and
conducted a breath test that sound the man's blood alcohol level was 0.20
percent, the Allentown (Pa.) Morning Call reported Wednesday. Beury was
jailed for contempt of court and the sentencing was put off until

Judge Roger Nanovic gave Beury the same sentence he had initially
prescribed, 30 days to six months in county prison but added the
condition that the man must petition the court before he can be released.

A person sentenced to 90 days or less in jail in the county is usually
released after the minimum term if there are no behavior problems, the
Morning Call said.
