Kraynak to be sentenced Nov. 4
SUNBURY - Dr. Raymond Kraynak, who was found guilty Friday by Northumberland County Judge Charles H. Saylor of driving under the influence of alcohol, is scheduled to be sentenced by the judge at 9:15 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4.
The 56-year-old Kulpmont resident, who is a member of Mount Carmel Area School Board, faces a maximum prison sentence of six months plus fines and costs. He remains free on bail.
Kraynak vowed to appeal the guilty verdict at the conclusion of last week's trial.
The defendant, who denied being drunk, was the only defense witness at the trial, while the prosecution presented six police officers as witnesses.
He was charged by Coal Township Patrolman Matthew Henrich in connection with a May 26, 2012, sobriety checkpoint along Route 61 in the east end of the township.
Kraynak was represented at trial by Attorney Frederick Fanelli of Pottsville. Assistant District Attorney Michael Toomey prosecuted the case.
