Clearfield County Man Receives State Prison Sentence

SHARE NOW

CLEARFIELD – A Clearfield County man was sentenced to a two-to-five year state prison term Tuesday following his guilty plea to aggravated assault and illegal possession of a firearm charges.

According to court documents, 34-year-old Brandon Hutson Sr. of Clearfield showed up at Penn Highlands Clearfield in February with a gunshot wound to his leg. Hutson reportedly became uncooperative and aggressive at the hospital, and he told police that another man shot him when he was trying to buy marijuana. Follow-up investigation by the Clearfield Regional Police revealed that Hutson shot himself, and that his prior criminal convictions made it illegal for him to possess a gun.
