LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Three young men will soon learn their sentences for a rock-throwing incident last year that caused severe brain trauma to an Ohio schoolteacher as she passed through Pennsylvania in the dead of night.

A judge will decide Thursday what punishment is appropriate for Tyler Porter, Dylan Lahr and Keefer McGee for the July 2014 attack along Interstate 80 in central Pennsylvania.

The victim, middle school language arts teacher Sharon Budd, is expected to be in court for the proceeding.

A fourth man, Brett Lahr, already is serving 18 months to 20 years after pleading no contest to a conspiracy count.

The nearly 5-pound rock crashed through the front windshield of the car in which Budd was riding, striking her directly. She’s already had seven surgeries.
