Sentence Handed Down To Port Matilda Man

centre-county-correctional-facilityCentre County Judge Pamela Ruest sentenced Joshua R. Dreibelbis to between 3 and 28.5 months in Centre County Correctional Facility with one year probation last Thursday.  This ruling came after Dreibelbis pleaded guilty to two counts of simple assault and three counts of terroristic threats.

The Collegian gives details on the December 8, 2008 altercation in the HUB:

On Dec. 8 Dreibelbis grabbed a student by the hair and placed a knife on his throat, saying “I told you not to f— with me N—-r,” according to court documents. This incident came after Dreibelbis and the man police say he attacked got into a verbal altercation about a mutual female friend, police said.

Later that day, Dreibelbis grabbed another man in the HUB-Robeson Center, threatening him with his knife and eventually cutting the man’s hair with the weapon, according to court documents.

Dreibelbis’ Attorney was pulling for in-home incarceration, but the prosecution recommended that the judge sentence him to a minimum of 11.5 months in jail.  Since the incident, Dreibelbis has been attending counseling sessions to help curb his anger issues.

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
