Duquesne Professor Pleads Guilty in Car-key Vandalism Case

by Associated Press

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. — A Pennsylvania professor known for her expertise on consumer trends has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for keying her neighbors’ cars.

Online court records show 62-year-old Duquesne University professor Audrey Guskey pleaded guilty to three summary citations on Monday, paid $897 in fines and court costs, and agreed to pay more than $10,000 to fix her neighbors’ cars.

Bridgeville police last month charged Guskey with felony and misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief after she allegedly told them that she gets upset when others park their vehicles in front of her residence. Those more serious charges were dropped Monday as part of a plea deal her attorney, Phil DiLucente, said left all the parties “happy and neighborly.”

The university says Guskey has taken responsibility for her actions and the matter is resolved.
