DuBois woman pleads guilty to assaulting two Penn Highlands employees


CLEARFIELD – A DuBois woman will serve up to four years in state prison after pleading guilty to assaulting two Penn Highlands employees.

Police say 48-year-old Teresa Hummel attacked a patient care assistant and a registered nurse in January because she became irritated while waiting for someone to pick her up at the DuBois hospital.

Hummel’s attorney defended her in Clearfield County Court Tuesday claiming that Hummel’s criminal history is due to mental health issues.
