Horton's Father Admits Guilt In Oil Tanks Spill

WESB NEWS--Andrew Horton Pleads Guilty
Andrew Horton has pleaded guilty to conspiring with his son to intentionally spill more than 42,000 gallons of oil onto the Allegheny National Forest in August of last year.

He admitted in McKean County Court on Tuesday that he and his son, Christopher, planned to vandalize the tanks owned by Snyder Brothers, their former employer. But he said he didn't realize the amount of damage releasing the oil would cause.

The spill killed nearly 4,000 fish and other aquatic life, and caused about half a million dollars in damage to Snyder Brothers property.

Andrew Horton will be sentenced July 1. District Attorney John Pavlock says Horton could be called to testify in his son's criminal trial. No date has been scheduled for the trial yet.
