CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A former Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., man scheduled to be sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison for two armed robberies was not in Franklin County Court on Wednesday, having been sent by authorities in York County, Pa., to Virginia, where he faces similar charges.
Daniel Scott Uppercue, 33, had entered a guilty plea May 14 to charges in two armed robberies, according to court records. As part of the plea agreement, he was to serve the sentence concurrent with one imposed earlier in Adams County, Assistant Public Defender Ian Brink said.
"After he pled here, he went to York County" on another criminal case, District Attorney John F. Nelson said. "Somehow, when York was done with him, they sent him to Virginia, which was next in line."
Nelson and Brink both said they did not know exactly why Uppercue ended up in Virginia, one of four states where he was charged with committing robberies. In addition to Pennsylvania and Virginia, he was charged in holdups in Maryland and West Virginia, according to court documents.
