Judge sets bail for security guard convicted in shooting

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A Berks County man who's appealing his involuntary manslaughter conviction is now allowed to post bail.

This week, Judge Kelly Banach set bail at $250,000 for Andrew Gesslein, of Tilden Township.

Gesslein will have to pay 10% and according to his wife, he has not yet posted bail.

In June of 2013, Gesslein was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison for shooting and killing Michael Randolph at the North End Republican Club in Allentown, where Gesslein was working security.

Gesslein appealed his conviction, and a judge granted him a new trial, citing insufficient evidence.
