Court documents indicate 30-year-old Adam Matthew Kriner, of Bristol, Tennessee, is scheduled to stand for a plea hearing in front of President Judge Sara J. Seidle-Patton at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 19.

He is currently free on $10,000.00 monetary bail.

The charges stem from an incident in Lucinda that left a 34-year-old man on life support.

Details of the case:

According to Clarion-based State Police, on August 10 around 4:42 p.m., officers were dispatched to 231 Sunset Drive in Lucinda, Knox Township, Clarion County, for an assault in progress.

Upon arrival, it was determined that 34-year-old Jason Confer, of DuBois, singed the hair of 29-year-old Adam Matthew Kriner, of Bristol, Tennessee, with a lighter.

Kriner waited approximately 20 minutes to retaliate and then punched Confer in the face with a closed fist. Confer then fell and struck his head off the concrete sidewalk, according to police.

Confer had to be life-flighted to Allegheny General Hospital for his injuries. It was later learned that Confer had to be placed on life support and medically induced into a coma.

Kriner was taken into custody and arraigned in Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill’s office at 7:38 p.m. on August 10.
