CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Franklin County President Judge John R. Walker removed himself from a case involving suspects in a drive-by shooting after remarks he made while sentencing two co-defendants last week. Daniel Carl Putt, 16, of Mercersburg, Pa., and Timothy Keller Messner, 17, of Chambersburg, were in court Monday for a hearing to determine whether their cases would be transferred from adult to juvenile court. Messner's attorney, Patrick J. Redding, asked Walker to remove himself for comments he made Wednesday while sentencing Bradley Alan Walls, 18, of Chambersburg, and Freddie Franklin Herr, 20, of St. Thomas, Pa., to two years probation for their roles in a March 11 shooting in Fannettsburg, Pa. "I told them they were lucky because if they were the one who shot into the trailer, I'd have given them some time in prison," Walker said Monday in explaining why he agreed to have another judge hear the cases.
