Perkasie man sentenced to time in deputy sheriff's death

PERKASIE, Pa. - A Bucks County man was sentenced up to 22 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Wednesday to killing a deputy sheriff.

Harry Burak, now 28, was driving under the influence when he caused a crash that killed Keith Clymer in May 2017 in East Rockhill Township. 

During a preliminary hearing, the judge ruled there was enough evidence against Burak to send him to trial. The trial was set to begin Wednesday, but Burak pleaded guilty before it could begin. 

He is sentenced to six and a half to 22 years and nine months in prison, with 10 years of consecutive probation. His drivers license was also previously suspended due to multiple DUI convictions.
