Brownley submits letter of resignation

Tension was building at the A.T. Johnson Building as the Westmoreland County supervisors came in one by one.  The county attorney was there.  People were beginning to fill up the chairs.  This was to be a meeting about what to do about the new drug conviction against Lynn Brownley, member of the board from the Third District.
Just as the meeting was about to start, someone handed Chairman W.W. Hynson a letter signed by Lynn Brownley, and sent by e-mail at 1:34 p.m., Thursday, October 28, 2010, the day of the board meeting, from Brownley to the office of the county supervisor.  It was addressed to the citizens of Westmoreland County, including the Board of Supervisors.

Lynn Brownley now a twice-convicted felon

On Monday, Oct. 25, Lynn C. Brownley appeared in the Westmoreland County Circuit Court for his trial on the charge of possession of a controlled substance listed in Schedule I or II. This would be the second time Brownley was faced with the same charge. His last conviction was in 1989, and resulted in his stepping down as Commonwealth’s Attorney of Westmoreland County.

There was a written agreement signed by Brownley that he was pleading guilty to the charge, but there was no agreement as to sentence nor did things go as Brownley had hoped during the hearing. Brownley’s attorney asked the court not to find him guilty during the Monday hearing, but that was not to be.
