Arrested last summer after he pushed through Courthouse security and ran toward a judge’s chambers, a Fort Wayne man pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor charges.
James A. Handschy, 25, of the 800 block of Lavina Street, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement. But, according to court officials, he was ordered back to prison to serve the remainder of a sentence from a 2009 burglary case.
In July, Handschy ran past a security checkpoint in the Allen County Courthouse and ran up to Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull’s chambers, saying he was going to get her because she sentenced him to prison on the burglary case.
In December, special Judge Monte Brown from DeKalb County found Handschy incompetent to stand trial. He had a hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
Handschy pleaded guilty to the two charges, and Brown ordered his probation in the burglary case revoked. He was sent to the Indiana Department of Correction for four years.
Handschy was sentenced to a year in jail on each of the misdemeanor charges, but the time was served during the period he has been in jail since his arrest.
