According to a criminal complaint, Robert Joseph Milhomme, 29, of Brookville, allegedly spit on a corrections officer around 11:00 a.m. on August 25 after calling the officer over to his cell, with the spit landing on the right side of the officer’s face and shirt.

Milhomme allegedly admitted spitting on both corrections officers, “so he would be arrested and then be sent to state prison,” the complaint indicates.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on October 8 in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M Bazylak.
