Fast Life Proves Expensive For Amish Man


An Amish man who led state police on a chase that hit speeds of up to 120 mph through northern Dauphin County was sentenced to 2 years of probation after pleading guilty to multiple charges Wednesday. Sylvan M. Stoltzfus wasn't driving a buggy during the pursuit. And no, he didn't have a really fast horse, either. He was driving a car.

But his lawyer, Gary Lysaght, said the 19-year-old Millersburg-area man won't be getting behind a steering wheel again.

"His parents sold his car," Lysaght told county President Judge Todd A. Hoover. "He now has his own horse and buggy."
