TOWANDA, Pa. (WETM) – Daniel and Timothy Bellows have been sentenced to serve time in the Bradford County Correctional Facility after a dependent family member was found neglected.

Daniel Bellows, 51, was sentenced to incarceration in the Bradford County Correctional Facility for a term of six months to 18 months, plus court costs, for the offense of Neglect of Care-(Dependent Person), a misdemeanor of the first degree.

Daniel Bellows entered a guilty plea in October after an investigation began in December 2018.

Timothy Bellows, 51, was sentenced to Probation Supervision for a term of six months, plus costs, for the offense of Recklessly Endangerment of another Person, a misdemeanor of the second degree.

Timothy Bellows pleaded no-contest to the charge in November 2018.
