Pursel, Reynolds get state time for robbery, assault

LOCK HAVEN — Two young men charged with robbery and assault in the beating of a 16-year-old boy earlier this year have been sentenced to state prison time.

Logan Pursel, 20, of Lock Haven, was sentenced last week by Clinton County Judge Craig P. Miller to serve 33 to 167 months in the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill. The sentence is the combination of consecutive sentences for four different criminal cases — prohibited offensive weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of oxycodone and robbery.

Dominic Aaron Reynolds, 18, of Lock Haven, was sentenced earlier this year and has already begun to serve 27 to 168 months in a state correctional institution.

Pursel and Reynolds were arrested by Lock Haven City Police last March and remained in the Clinton County Correctional Facility until their sentencings. They will be given credit for time served.

According to court records:

Pursel and Reynolds accused the 16-year-old victim of stealing an auxiliary cord and phone charger out of Reynolds vehicle. The victim said Pursel and Reynold pulled him into the hallway at 610 E. Bald Eagle St., Building 7, and began to beat him.

Pursel and Reynolds then took the juvenile to another location on Spring Street, then back to 610 E. Bald Eagle St., where they assaulted him again and took his cell phone.

At the Lock Haven Gardens, the victim said he was again punched in the face by Reynolds and Pursel, and the two men stripped him naked and continued to punch him in the face and body.

The sentencings followed plea agreements.
