The Westmoreland County Board of Supervisors will meet at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, March 8 in A.T. Johnson auditorium. Brownley, who resigned from his elected position following the 1988 arrest, made it known on Thursday that he has unfinished public business on the Board of Supervisors. There will be no immediate opportunity for other Board members and the court to select and appoint a District 3 successor.
King George Commonwealth's Attorney Matt Britton assumed the role of special prosecutor in the Circuit court on Thursday. Westmoreland's own Dean Atkins has recused himself, as did Judge Joseph Ellis.
According to Britton, Brownley has provided the police with a full statement detailing his drug activities.
Brownley expressed remorse when he addressed the court. He said he had tried very hard to recover his standing in the community.
The Westmoreland County native was released from jail on Thursday afternoon.
