Christopher Shulas, 34, of Ulster, Pa., will be sentenced in February for nine crimes committed in Ulster Township last June. Shulas pled guilty to felony trespassing. He entered "no contest" pleas to four weapons charges and terroristic threats, unlawful restraint, reckless endangering and assault by menacing. The pleas were entered after a jury had been selected for a trial for Thursday and Friday. Shulas entered "no contest" plea on eight of the charges telling the court he had no clear collection of the time in question due to use of synthetic drugs. He was able to recall entering an unoccupied seasonal home during his flight after the other offenses. His "no contest" plea acknowledged that there was enough evidence to convict him. State Trooper Michael Moser filed charges that Shulas had sawed off two shotguns and threatened his girlfriend with them. He forced her to drive him to meet other people. She escaped when she stopped for gas in Ulster. Shulas fled on foot, leaving the guns in the car. Later in the day he entered an Ulster Township house. He was apprehended at his parent's home. The felony trespass offense is punishable by a sentence of up to seven years. Each of the six first-degree misdemeanors has a five year maximum. Two second-degree misdemeanors have a maximum sentence of two years. Judge Maureen Beirne has directed that Shulas be evaluated in the custody of the Pa.. State Department of Corrections before the sentence is imposed.
