Troy Tierney (pic), 25, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in May. Judge Pamela Ruest handed out the maximum sentence for the crime — two-and-a-half to five years in state prison. Tierney also must pay a $1,000 fine for game law violations.
“Life was lost. A very young woman has a family now that visits her at a gravesite, and that will never change,” said District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller. “Based upon the gravity of the offense and the effect upon the victims, we thought that was an appropriate sentence and the judge agreed.”
In 2009, Tierney and 21-year-old Racheal Perryman were poaching deer after dark in the woods off state Route 504 in Union Township when they became separated and Tierney shot Perryman. Tierney told police he shot at a moving object in the woods and didn’t know it was Perryman. He was on multiple prescription medications at the time and police reported him to be stumbling and talking with slurred speech at the crime scene.
What a thing to live with for the rest of your dumbass life.
