LEWISBURG, Pa.—A Pennsylvania man will serve 18 months to 20 years in prison for his role in a rock throwing from an Interstate 80 overpass that caused severe head injuries to an Ohio teacher last year.

Union County Judge Michael Sholley sentenced 19-year-old Brett Lahr on Tuesday and took guilty pleas from Lahr’s brother Dylan and a third defendant, Keefer McGee.

The lawyer for the fourth defendant, Tyler Porter, told the judge he’s considering a plea deal.
