Man pleads guilty in Stockertown gun club case

EASTON, Pa. - A man charged with firing his gun recklessly at the Stockertown Rod and Gun Club admitted he fired the shots that hit nearby homes in Northampton County.

Timothy Frey pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in court Monday. All other charges were dropped.

Frey's attorney, Syzane Arifaj, says Frey was sentenced to one year of probation and must pay $5,600 in restitution, as well as court costs. 

A 69 News investigative report in 2015 spurred the district attorney's office to investigate reports of errant bullets hitting homes and ending up on properties near the range.

Frey was originally charged in August with discharging a firearm into an occupied structure and two counts of recklessly endangering another person.

The prosecution dropped the felony charge last October.
