CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - A Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., man charged with committing more than 20 robberies in four states entered a not guilty plea Wednesday in Franklin County Court and had his case scheduled for the January trial term.
Daniel Scott Uppercue, 32, formerly of Lumar Avenue, was in court for mandatory arraignment on two counts of robbery, three counts of simple assault, two counts of theft, and one count each of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, intimidation of witnesses, harassment and receiving stolen property.
Uppercue has been charged with 21 robberies in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia, Assistant Public Defender Ian Brink said. Uppercue has been convicted and sentenced on charges in Virginia and will not be eligible for parole there until 2009, Brink said.
The Franklin County charges against Uppercue will likely not be resolved until the charges against him in Adams County have been dealt with, Brink said Wednesday.
