In a story published Tuesday, April 13, the attorney for Joseph Leschinskie Jr. was incorrectly identified as Michael Rudinski, his former attorney. Leschinskie is now being represented by attorney James Best, of Sunbury. Additionally, it was incorrectly reported Leschinskie’s trial on charges of terroristic threats will be held Aug. 17. A trial will be held that day for an unrelated case Leschinskie is charged in that involves allegations he unlawfully recorded a court proceeding.
