Last week, Judge Stephen Baratta imposed a 12-month probationary sentence on West Easton Constable Tricia Mezzacappa. A jury convicted her in March of lying to state troopers in an attempt to frame a black man with pointing a gun at her head. After hearing the conditions under which she could retain her freedom, Mezzacappa decided she'd rather be in jail.
Her wish has been granted. She was picked up in Berks County on Tuesday without incident and brought to Northampton County jail today.
I will update you after Judge Baratta does whatever he's going to do.
