Man sentenced to 6 to 20 years in prison for role in 2014 Johnstown shooting
EBENSBURG, Pa. - A man who entered a no contest plea in a fatal shooting outside of the Edder's Den bar in 2014 in Johnstown has been sentenced.
Jeremy Woodard, 38, was sentenced Thursday to serve six to 20 years in a state prison, according to Assistant District Attorney Heath Long. Woodard will be credited for four years he has already served.
Woodard was one of three men charged for their roles in the shooting death of Tony Phillips in 2014.
In June, Joshua Cambric was found guilty of murder and is waiting to be sentenced. In March, Keith Reed was found guilty of conspiracy to commit third-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison.
Attorneys for all the men argued that the case against all three should have been thrown out due to rule 600, based on the fact the case didn't go to trial within 365 days of when charges were first filed. A judge denied the request.
Attorneys for Cambric and Reed are expected to appeal.
