BEAVER, Pa. — An appellate court will now decide if a Greene County man who dumped wastewater in western Pennsylvania streams will have to serve time in jail.

Initially a county judge handed down probation as his sentence.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office has asked the Pennsylvania Superior Court to order a resentencing for Robert Allan Shipman, 51, of New Freeport.
